Soil Health Field Day
Attend the Soil Health Field Day on October 4th at the Mike Kennis farm near DuBois. There you can see the results of an interseeding demonstration of annual ryegrass and clover seeded into corn in June and learn how to select cover crops and time seeding dates to ensure a successful stand without affecting the cash crop. In addition, Dr. Sjoerd Duiker will lead sessions on health testing, soil physical properties, carbon and nitrogen cycling and soil fertility. In addition, representatives from the Clearfield Conservation District and the Natural Resources Conservation Service will provide the latest information of programs that can help farmers implement soil health practices.
Admission is free but attendees are asked to register online or by contacting Clearfield County Extension at (814) 765-7878. A light lunch and refreshments will be provided.
