This workshop held at the Grundy County Fair brings farmers together to learn about and discuss different field crop topics. This year, the workshop will be led by farmer Fred Abels and district conservationist Courtney Myers with the Grundy County Soil and Water Conservation District. Come hear farmers’ experiences with biological products, how they make their own compost tea and how these products fit into their operations. Josh Nelson and Ryan Gibbs, both farmers who work with Singular Agronomics, will share their use of biological products and how these products work on their own farms. If you’ve wondered about biological products, this event is a chance to ask questions and discuss how these products can affect the bottom line.

Lunch will follow the workshop.
