Field day at Eden, Wisconsin dairy farm. Clint Hodorff planted a multi-species cover crop mix following wheat harvest.
The soil infiltrated 4" of rain that we received over a 24-hour period prior to field day.
The mix included grasses, legumes, and brassicas and was seeded at 30lbs/acre.

Annual conservation practices survey: A look at the numbers

By Steve Richter, agricultural strategies director, The Nature Conservancy

Members of Sheboygan River Progressive Farmers complete a survey each winter to gauge interest in soil health practices. It's an annual recap of the number of farmers using conservation practices on their fields and a tally of total acres of each practice. In this article, I'll share some highlights from 2019. In your next newsletter, I will talk more specifically about how the practices farmers are using are keeping soil and phosphorus from entering our waters.
