2015 Field Day
“Cover Crops and No-Till in the Valley” was the theme of our first Field Day. Over 20 producers and educators attended from 4 counties. Brent Gustafson, NRCS DC, and Eric Dahl, 319 Watershed Coordinator for the Cass County SCD, led the attendees through the various plots, explaining both the successes and failures from the past growing season. A unique demonstration of the soil aggregation of conventional till and no till was shown to the group, demonstrating how the no till soil holds up to water much better than the tilled soil.
