Organic Crops and Cover Crops
Thursday, July 22 | 4-6 p.m.
Address: 1673 Market Ave. | Galva, IA 51020
Join Sam to talk about transitioning to organic cropping systems and general cover cropping strategies. We’ll meet at Sam’s home before travelling to a nearby organic corn field. Drinks and snacks will be provided.
Sam Bennett and his wife, Danielle, raise corn, soybeans and small grains with Sam’s family on a 2,000-acre operation in Ida County, Iowa. They use cover crops, no-till and strip-till to work toward their goals of improving soil health, conservation, nutrient management and water quality, and creating habitat.
