Area farmers are invited to learn about how to make cover crops profitable at an upcoming workshop, Finding Profit in Cover Crops. The workshop will feature a farmer-led panel covering multiple topics including no-till, strip-till, and cover crops so you can get your questions answered by producers who have hands-on experience.
Sarah Carlson of Practical Farmers of Iowa will speak on making cover crops pay. Dean Sponheim, a producer in Osage, IA will speak on the paybacks of cover crops.
When: Thursday, March 14, 9:30am to 2:30pm
Where: Le Center American Legion, 97 S. Park Ave, Le Center, MN
