Event Description

Opportunities to incorporate cover crops into various cropping systems will be the focus of a North Dakota State University Extension field day Tuesday, Sept. 17.

Presenters will discuss and demonstrate the benefits of cover crops and how they can be used as part of an interseeding system in wheat, corn and soybeans. The field day will highlight 20 different cover crop species and how they can be incorporated into a farming operation or used for fall grazing. Other topics include:

  • Cover crops and soil health
  • Benefits and challenges of cover crops
  • Forage sorghum and grazing mixtures
  • The results of seeding timing
  • Rate of rye and camelina seeded into standing corn or soybeans
  • And more!

In addition, participants will visit the NDSU field research and demonstration plots near Reile's Acres, N.D., by bus. Lunch will be provided.
