1st Annual Cover Crop Roundtable

Thursday, January 31, 2019

Come join local growers and WSU Extension Specialists to discuss cover crop successes and challenges and making cover crops work for our region’s farms. We’ll start with an introduction to the new Western Cover Crop Council and its initiatives to support on-farm cover crop research and collaborations, and an update from WSU on their current cover crop research activities. The afternoon will feature a panel of cover cropping farmers to jumpstart an interactive discussion with attendees. Please join us to share, learn, and find inspiration for using cover crops for the 2019 season! Can't make it to Puyallup? Join the roundtable remotely via Zoom!
