Equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities.
Mike Salama poses in one of his greenhouses in Boone. He hosted a field day on June 20 that focused on succulents, houseplants and the Salamas’ hydroponic greens and tomatoes.
A.J. will share insights from two years of adding food-grade oats to a corn-soy rotation. He’ll discuss variety selection and seeding; cover crops; making decisions about herbicides and fungicides; harvest and storage of grain and straw; and benefits and challenges he’s experienced. A.J. will also discuss on-farm research he has conducted aimed at optimizing fertilizer rates in corn following oats and a green manure, and in oats to maximize oat yield and minimize lodging.
