Join us Wednesday, August 25th for Field Notes when we welcome Anna Cates, Extension soil health specialist, Liz Stahl, Extension educator - crops, and Troy Salzer, Ag production systems educator in St. Louis County to discuss to discuss potential cover crop options for this fall and next spring.

The drought has many considering which cover crops may be the best option, or whether a cover crop will even grow in the dry soil conditions. This session will give an update on what the cover crop research looks like this year, as well as management recommendations if cover crops may be used for forage, soil health benefits, or both.
