Equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities.
Marty Schnicker, of Schnicker Specialties, shares how he and his family raise prize-winning giant pumpkins during a field day they hosted on the farm.
Wayne will share what he’s learned about managing his farm for soil health and using small grains as a profitable alternative to low margins in a conventional corn-bean rotation. He will also discuss breaking up weed cycles without expensive herbicides, incorporating small grains into animal rations, advances in small-grains varieties and experimenting with hybrid rye.
