Field Day

Thursday, May 28
Joe Wagner Farm
W8511 Glen Rd

Sheboygan River Progressive Farmers (SRPF) is hosting a Field Day on Thursday, May 28 at 7 PM.

Joe Wagner, president of SRPF, will share his experience with various practices on his home farm at W8511 Glen Rd, Glenbeulah. Field site is ΒΌ mile north of Glen Rd on Cherry Rd.

Topics include:
    » Checking corn emergence
    » Evaluating stand count
    » Visiting 3 planting sites with varied tillage practices
       o Planting green with rye
       o No till planting in soybeans
       o Conventional planting

Joe will share his experience with these conservation practices and more. The conservation practices he uses include 5,000 feet of grassed waterways, 18 acres of buffer along a ditch that flows into the Sheboygan Marsh, strip cropping, no-tilling soybeans and corn on highly erodible land, and no-tilling all winter wheat. These are practices Joe feels will ensure the land is better when we leave than when we got here.

There will be plenty of time for questions and conversation. We look forward to visiting with you!

Please RSVP or call Joe at 920-838-1102

Field trip to Wagner farm

October 25, 2017

We were in the field to see how 2 of the Sheboygan River Progressive Farmers are using cover crops like oats and tillage radishes to improve their soil and reduce nutrient runoff into nearby streams. With support from the Kohler Trust for Preservation, The Nature Conservancy is providing technical and administrative support to help the Progressive Farmers build their organization and get more conservation practices on farm fields in the region.
