The Pennsylvania No-Till Alliance will host two summer field days next week — Thursday, July 23, at the Mark Rohrbach Farm, 240 Southern Drive in Catawissa, Columbia County, and Friday, July 24, at the Ryan Graham Farm, 181 Harmony Street, Evans City, Butler County.
Keynote speaker Zeb Winslow raises cotton, corn, soybeans and wheat in a 100% no-till and cover crop system in Scotland Neck, North Carolina.
Winslow’s father moved away from conventional tillage more than 20 years ago, and the family has used no-till and multispecies cover crops for the last 5 years.
The field days will also include breakout sessions and demonstrations including planting green, tile installation, grazing cover crops, a planter display, drone cover crop seeding and cover crop plots.
The field days are free to those who register by July 20, or $10 at the door.
To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 717-574-4510.
To reduce COVID-19 concerns, the event will be held in an outdoor tent or shop setting, and social distancing seating options will be available.
People who are not feeling well are asked to stay home.
