SUCCESS STORIES

The Wisconsin School for Beginning Dairy and Livestock Farmers: Keeping the Dream of Farming Alive

As older farmers retire, fewer young farmers are stepping in to take their place. The number of beginning farmers dropped 20 percent in the last five-year census period, and the average US farmer now tops 58 years of age. more

UW Organic Field Day

Date: Aug 30 2011 1:00 pm

Location: [unknown]

Posted August 2011

Arlington Agricultural Research Station

This field day will focus on CALS research using a no-till cover crop “killed mulch” system for managing weeds. Field tours will offer a look at several no-till experiments that employ the roller-crimper designed by the Rodale Institute. Under this system, producers plant a cover crop after harvest in the fall—generally winter rye for soybeans or hairy vetch for corn—then kill it in May using the heavy roller, leaving a thick mulch through which the cash crop is planted.

Registration for the event will begin at 12:30 p.m. at the Public Events building. Field tours begin at 1 p.m. Researchers invite organic producers to stick around for an hour after the tours to offer ideas about research, extension, and education needs that could be addressed by UW scientists.

The Arlington Agricultural Research Station is located at N695 Hopkins Road, Arlington.
