Cover Crop -Field Walk

Del Voight- Penn State Extension
We are planning several field walks for growers to check out some cover crop options. Here is the flyer for those that might be interested to check out. The Lebanon site on November 21st will feature the Randy Ziegler Farm.  Randy has been using cover crops for 10 years now and has seen his organic matters on his berks shale soils go from 1.5% to over 3% OM that he attributes to no till and the use of cover crops.  The field day will start at 10 and end at 12 pm. Here is the agenda for the Ziegler Crop Walk.
