Companion Cropping Demonstration Field Day

August 29, 2019
Osage City, Kansas

No-till on the Plains is hosting a free soil health field day at Thompson Farms. Through a grant from the North Central Region of the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program (SARE), four producers across Kansas have planted demonstrations plots of grain sorghum with companion species (mung beans, guar, flax, mustards, buckwheat). The plots are designed to assess whether the companion plantings can reduce the need for herbicides and pesticides to protect the sorghum crop.
