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.
