Equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities.
It has been said that those who keep their eyes on the horizon will find the right path. At PFI’s 2022 annual conference, we are “Facing the Horizon” together, seeking new knowledge, broader understanding and unexpected ways to improve our farms and communities.
We’re looking forward to gathering again in-person to reunite with old friends and make new ones, January 21 – 22, 2022 at ISU’s Scheman Building. Visit our conference webpage to read about our plans for 61 farmer-led sessions, our keynote speaker, PFI storytelling, several new activities, and to get you and your farm and household registered.
Join Woody Van Arkel and Cameron Ogilvie as they share results of and experience with on-farm research at Woody’s farm. Research explored different cover crops in combination with manure applications and side-dressed nitrogen. Cover crops included cereal rye, red clover and multi-species blends. Learn how on-farm research like this can help you consider net returns and not solely bushels per acre.
