Producers and agricultural professionals met in Rothschild, Wisc., to share information and experience at the 2022 Wisconsin Cover Crop Conference. There were over 300 participants including beginning farmers and producers experienced with soil health practices.
The conference hosted speakers from around Wisconsin and the Midwest to learn about subjects related to maintaining and improving soil health with cover crops. Topics included in-season manure applications, managing equipment for planting green, incorporating cover crops into vegetable rotations, adaptive rye management and the economics of soil health practices.
“Being able to assist in the Creating Opportunities for In-Season Manure session was a great experience! There was something for everybody in the session. Speakers, Aaron Augustian, Jacob Brey and Jordan Crave have raised the bar by creating multiple opportunities that enhance soil health management systems while reaping the benefits of manure,” said Brian Briski, Area Resource Conservationist with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).
Four sessions from the conference were recorded and are published for viewing. You can view the pocketbook here , for descriptions and links to the following videos:
