More info about the Workshop

The company has planted eight test plots of its new custom cover crop blends and will be featuring each plot in discussion about the use, habit and structure of the plot and how farmers can use each blend to optimize soil water holding capacity, enable nitrogen storage and delivery, reduce compaction, suppress weeds and disease, and much more!

Agriculture Solutions agronomists and plant health specialists will be on-site to discuss each plot and answer any questions you have about using cover crops on your farm.
