Producers and ag advisers interested in learning the finer points of using cover crops in a farming operation can see them used first hand during the Conservation Technology Information Center’s (CTIC) Cover Crop Summit Nov. 20-21 in the Fort Wayne, Ind., area.
Summit discussion topics will include practical ways to incorporate cover crops into an operation, cover crop planting methods and more. Tour stops will feature grain farmers and animal producers who have successfully incorporated cover crops into their unique systems through innovation. Travel scholarships to attend the event are available.
At each operation, producers will share details on their experiences with cover crops, including how they began, their current management techniques and benefits they have found on their farms. Other experts on cover crops, such as university researchers, also will be available to answer questions.
A room block under group code 1120 is available at Don Hall’s Guesthouse, 1313 W. Washington Center Rd., Fort Wayne. Participants should make their own room reservations, even if applying for a travel scholarship.
