UW Discovery Farms 7th Annual Conference

Pigeon Falls, WI. – Register today for the 7th Annual UW Discovery Farms Conference set to be held on December 12, 2018, at the Glacier Canyon Convention Center in Wisconsin Dells, WI. Farmers, crop consultants, agency personnel and anyone with an interest in agriculture and water quality are encouraged to attend this educational day.

The theme this year is Using science to intersect production and water quality goals. UW Discovery Farms understands there are challenges intertwining conservation into field operations while maintaining economic goals, especially in depressed market time periods. This year’s conference will provide the solutions and tools needed to strategize back in the field.

UW Discovery Farms provides Wisconsin farmers with credible water quality information straight from privately-owned farms, and is excited to bring together a lineup of innovators and experts to this year’s event. Presentations will focus on Midwestern research with speakers from Indiana, Iowa and Wisconsin. Attendees will hear the latest data on cover crops, nitrogen and phosphorus management, and water quality.

In addition to hearing renowned applied research, attendees will get a chance to hear from and ask questions to a panel of farmers. The title of the farmer panel is Plant green, harvest green, spread green and will feature farmers who have adopted and adapted techniques to plant into a growing cover crop, interseed into corn or soybeans and successfully combine living covers and manure. At the end of the day a reality check panel will bring up all speakers and panelists from the day to get last questions answered and look for ways to put thoughts into action.

The conference will be held on December 12, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. at the Glacier Canyon Conference Center in Wisconsin Dells, WI. 4.5 CEUs will be available in Soil & Water Managment. Registration is now open online at www.uwdiscoveryfarms.org or call 715.983.5668. The cost is $50 for members of sponsoring organizations and $60 for non-members.
