Cover Crops for Soil Health & Increased Profits
March 30 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$10.00
This presentation will focus on practical implementation in production systems that benefit both the farmer and the land: cover crops, variable rate technology, and extended rotation. Rooted in scientific principles published through the NRCS, we’ll discuss strategies that help bridge the gap between technical applications and practices in the field. Adam Kramer will be joined by area farmers. There will be time for Q & A. This event is co-sponsored by Sinsinawa Mound Center and Grant County Rural Stewardship.
Tuesday, March 30, 7-8 p.m.CDT. The zoom link will be sent via email on the morning of the event.
$10/person. Registration deadline is Monday, March 29 at 4 p.m.
Presenter: Adam Kramer is a graduate of Iowa State University and has been a Certified Crop Advisor since 2006. During his 16 years in the industry, Kramer has always believed that agriculture and environmental stewardship are synonymous. This focus has led to the formation of two entities located in the Driftless Area of Wisconsin. Black Sand Granary is an agronomy-centered business, and Growers United is a network of demonstration farms implementing regenerative practices. These entities work to enhance soil health and improve water quality. Growers operating within this system utilize technology and comprehensive plans to measure results. Kramer believes the responsibility of stewardship rests on those touching the land most. This presents a leadership opportunity to ensure adequate nutrition and clean water for families, communities, and generations yet to come.
