Curious about cover crops? Have you ever stopped to wonder how cover crops would work for you? Explore the possibilities of cover crops on your land by attending the Cover Crop Workshop and Information Exchange at the Minnesota West Community and Technical College campus in Worthington from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. March 11. Preregistration for this event is preferred as the first 50 farmers to preregister will have their registration fee waived and receive a free lunch. After that, registration will be $10 to cover the cost of lunch.
To preregister, contact the Nobles County NRCS/SWCD office by calling 507.376.9150 ext. 3 or stop in the office at 1576 McMillan St. Please preregister by March 10.
The day will include cover crop basics and looking at the benefits they provide for our soil, crops and biology; as well as a farmer panel with three farmers from around our area who have started using cover crops in the last five years. Hear how they got started, what they have learned and the adjustments they’ve made to make cover crops work for them.
This workshop is sponsored by the Nobles County NRCS and SWCD along with Sustainable Farming Association, the Okabena & Ocheda Watershed District, Nobles County Corn & Soybean Growers Association, MN West-Worthington Campus and numerous other partners.
