Transition to Organic With Diversity to Improve Soil Balance

August 14 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

August 14, 2019
Remsen, Iowa

Practical Farmers of Iowa and University of Northern Iowa offer an opportunity to visit Robert Alexander at 360 Heritage Farms. Tour two on-farm research trials: planting corn in 60-inch row-widths for cover crops, and grazing sheep and spring-seeded cereal rye ahead of soybeans for weed control. View equipment used for field preparation and organic crop. This field day will also discuss rotationally grazing sheep and cattle and how to make compost tea, and participants will have a chance to see a first-year elderberry planting.
