A workshop detailing innovations in growing and grazing cover crops will be held Tuesday, February 25th, from 10 a.m. to noon, at the Chatfield Lutheran Church in Chatfield.
This Land Stewardship Project (LSP) event is open to the public. A lunch prepared by Old Tyme Café and Catering of Chatfield will be provided.
The practice of implementing cover crops in a farming rotation and as an added feed source is increasing in southeast Minnesota. The workshop discussion will include how cover crops benefit soil health and water quality, along with management of cover crops over winter and in preparation for spring planting.
Multi-species mixes will be discussed as well as grazing strategies for livestock on cover crops.
