Have you heard the buzz about Soil Health? Are you considering implementing cover crops into your rotation? Want to see how a cover crop roller works? If so, consider joining us for an upcoming workshop!

The North Carolina Conservation Districts are hosting spring and fall Soil Health Field Days to demonstrate the importance of cover crops. All producers and technical resource people are invited to join. You will have lots of time to network with other producers and local cover crop experts as well as view a demonstration field in multi-species cover crops.

Pleasant Emergency Services Building, 7637 Harris Road, Bailey NC 27807. Invited speakers include Buz Kloot and Russell Hendrick. No registration fee and event held rain or shine.
