We would like to invite you to attend the 2022 UW Cover Crop Management in Conventional Corn-Soybean Production Systems Plot Tour on July 06, 2022 from 1:00PM-3:30PM at Arlington Agricultural Research Station to visit our cover crop research plots, check equipment and exchange knowledge with University Specialists and fellow farmers adopting cover crops in their crop production systems.

Event registration will start at 12:45PM at the Public Events Building at Arlington Agricultural Research Station (Address: N695 Hopkins Road, Arlington, WI). Please see attached flyer for complete information.

During the UW Cover Crop plot tour, students and staff in the Wisconsin Cropping Systems Weed Science program will showcase studies looking at planting corn and soybean “green” into standing cereal rye cover crop and cereal rye cover crop termination strategies, including the roller-crimper.

UW Soil Scientist Dr. Matt Ruark will join us to discuss the impact of cover crops on soil health and water quality. Regional Agronomist with the UW Nutrient and Pest Management Program Dan Smith will showcase a cover crop interseeding study in corn.

Attend TWO events July 6 at ARS, see below.
