Cover Crop Field Day

Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Iowa Learning Farms, in partnership with the Indian Creek Soil Health Partnership, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, and Linn County, will host a cover crop field day on Wednesday, August 14 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Marion Airport. The field day will feature several topics and speakers. The event is free, open to the public, and includes a complimentary meal. Cover crops continue to grow in popularity in Iowa due to their many benefits including reduced nitrogen and phosphorus loads entering water bodies, increased soil organic matter and reduced soil erosion. To take advantage of the benefits cover crops can provide, now is the time to start planning for fall seeding of cover crops. Please RSVP by August 9 to ensure adequate space and food sponsored by Linn Coop. Please RSVP to Emery Davis at 319-377-5960 Ext 3 or emery.davis@ia.nacdnet.net.
