Soil will be the focus when the Door-Kewaunee Demonstration Farm Network hosts its second field day in November. Hosted by Great Lakes Restoration, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, Peninsula Pride Farms, and the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection, attendees will see how farmers can use the NRCS to map their land so they can learn about the sensitive areas, yield potential, and fertility needs of their soil. Agronomist and Peninsula Pride Farms board member Zach Sutter says the field day will also focus how the private sector is helping farmers address their soil needs.
Low-cost cover crops and low disturbance manure application are also on the agenda for the Door-Kewaunee Demonstration Farm Network field day, which will take place November 9 from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Cycle Farm Holsteins in Sturgeon Bay.
