Join other row crop and livestock farmers for a virtual cover crop boot camp Dec. 3-4.1 of 3
Termination Dates for Cereal Rye In Soybeans
Wednesday, June 17 | 7:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Join hosts Sam and Jon to discuss their experiences and findings from trials investigating delayed termination of cereal rye in soybeans. They’ll give some background about their motivations to conduct on-farm research and explain how their original research questions evolved into an on-going trial looking at the impacts of not terminating cereal rye and leaving it to re-seed itself.

Jon Bakehouse is a lifetime member of PFI who farms with his wife Tina, son Anderson and parents near Hastings, Iowa. The Bakehouses raise corn and soybeans and are integrating goats for grazing with their small cow-calf herd. As the fifth generation farming his family’s land, Jon has conducted PFI on-farm research for over five years and unofficial field trials his entire farming career.
Sam Bennett and his wife Danielle raise corn, soybeans and small grains on a third of the Bennett family’s 2,000-acre operation near Galva. They use cover crops, no-till and strip-till to work toward their goals of improving soil health, conservation, nutrient management, water quality and creating habitat.
