OGRAIN Field Day: Organic Row Crops
Date: September 15, 2016, 1-4pm
Location: Fairview Farms, Cottonwood, MN
Posted June 2016
At Fairview Farms, the Olson family raises organic corn, soybeans and small grains on 1,100 acres, using a three-year rotation of corn, soybeans, and small grain with a cover crop. Their conventional hog operation supplies manure for their organic acres. Discussion will focus on weed management, soil fertility and use of cover crops including tillage radish planted in late summer.
This is the last of four field days hosted by OGRAIN, the Organic Grain Resources And Information Network at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The field day series is made possible by a grant from the USDA Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program. OGRAIN is a collaborative effort of the UW-Madison Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems, the Farm and Industry Short Course, the UW-Madison Organic and Sustainable Cropping Systems lab and the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES).
Pre-registration is required. Visit the MOSES website for more information.
