Field Demonstration of No-till Corn into Sod Ground

Friday, May 10, 2019 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm

Come join UVM and UNH Extension and the Connecticut River Watershed Farmers Alliance for a field demonstration of equipment used for farm viability, soil health, and water quality.

Steven Stocking, farmer and Connecticut River Watershed Farmers Alliance Board member, will show us his no-till corn planter in action. We will be using the planter to drill into sod ground.

We will discuss considerations made to convert his planter to no-till and how to make equipment adjustments for successful planting.

We will also talk about the no-till grain drill available for use by the Connecticut River Watershed Farmers Alliance.
