The UW-Extension office wants farmers to be proactive with the possible causes for damaged and underperforming crops through a series of workshops beginning February 6. Experts in insects, weeds, soil, and diseases will host the two-hour workshops to help farmers identify the issues and use best practices to take care of them. With crop prices continuing to tumble, Door County UW-Extension agriculture educator Annie Deutsch says the workshops are crucial, especially when it comes sporadic pests like insects.
You must be registered, but the three sessions at the Door County Government Center from 9-11 a.m. are free to attend.
