Bonus Workshop #1 featuring Steve Groff
Tuesday, January 7th, 10:00 a.m. to Noon.
How No-Tilling Hemp Could Add to Your Operation’s Bottom Line
Legal changes in the most recent Farm Bill approved by Congress created a burgeoning market in the U.S. for hemp, which can be grown for both fiber and CBD products. But raising this specialty crop is much different than traditional row crops, whether you’re talking about seeding practices, genetics, harvest methods or dealing with the legal requirements, says Holtwood, Pa., no-tiller Steve Groff.
During this special workshop, Groff will share his early experiences raising 70 acres hemp for the CBD market and provide attendees with an understanding of what’s required to break into this market, the equipment and fertility requirements, and what mistakes to avoid. He’ll even share how cover crops can be incorporated with hemp plants to facilitate soil health and provide nutrients for optimal growth.

Bonus Workshop #2 featuring James Hoorman
Tuesday, January 7th, 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Courting the Two M's' that Make or Break Your Soil Biological System
Tiny organisms play a plowerful role in building productive no-till soils, but a lot still must be learned about the specific players in the system and how to maximize their presence and effectiveness. Two of these invaluable organisms are metarrhizium and mycorrhizal fungi and they're both essential to your soil resource, says Jim Hoorman.
During this special workshop, the former NRCS educator and owner of Hoorman Soil Health Services will introduce metarrhizium fungi and define its role as a soil health parasite to over 200 insect species and recycler of soil nitrogen. Hoorman will also outline the importance mycorrhizal fungi functions, report on what mycorrhizae species are present in the soil and which ones are needed to improve agricultural production, as well as discuss ag products that are harmful or helpful to establishment of these fungi in no-till systems.
Both of these workshops have limited capacity and cost just an additional $99 each to attend. Sign up online by completing the form below. To sign up over the phone call (262) 432-0388 or (866) 839-8455 Mon.-Fri. 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
