Buckingham, Iowa

Practical Farmers of Iowa and the Iowa Seed Corn Cover Crops Initiative present a hands-on field day in two phases. From 2-5 p.m., farmers and producers will learn about soil health principles, including strip-tillage, grazing cover crops, and interseeding in 60-inch rows. The community is invited to join in for a meal at 5 p.m. Afterwards, children and parents can visit various stations on the farm to learn about steps local farmers are taking to protect water quality and soil health.
