WSU Cover Crop Field Day

Friday, April 19, 2019

Join us at Four Elements Farm for this two part workshop covering both cover crops and our new Direct Seed Drill.

This is a two-part workshop:
12:30-45 - Sign-in
12:45-2:30 - Tour of demonstration plots and cover crop discussion
2:30-3:30 - Pierce CD no-till drill training

Join us at Four Elements Farm to learn more about using cover crops to build soil health, boost crop productivity and protect water quality. WSU established demonstration plots at the farm in the fall of 2018 showcasing a selection of cover crop varieties trialed nationwide at USDA-NRCS Plant Material Centers. Come evaluate the selections for yourself and join the discussion around identifying cover crop varieties adapted for our region. Grassland Oregon, a company of cover crop and forage experts collaborating regionally and nationwide to develop superior cover crop varieties will join us to discuss their varieties featured in the demonstration and share about current cover crop efforts they are involved with. WSU Puyallup researchers will highlight strategies in cover crop management and we will hear from the farmers at Four Elements about how they are using cover crops to breathe new life into their soils.

Interested in using PCD’s new no-till seed drill for seeding cover crops and pasture in 2019? The field day will conclude with an opportunity to complete the training session required to borrow the drill!

This drill training and field day is free, but please register to help us plan accordingly.
