      June 12 OGRAIN Soil Health Field Day

      A day of discussion and time in the field with Sandy Syburg, organic farmer and owner of Purple Cow Organics, with numerous guests. We'll begin at Mapleton Community Center Township of Oconomowoc, N87 W35493 Mapleton Road , Oconomowoc, WI 53066. Join Sandy Syburg and a dynamic group of presenters as we explore use of crop rotations with legumes, manure and other organic-approved fertility inputs to improve soil fertility and crop yields within organic production systems. We will review a variety of field experiments illustrating differing fertility management techniques and products. Learn how attention to soil health using organic methods can build soil while mitigating the negative effects of tillage, resulting in long-term resiliency as well as good crop yields.
