Crop Rotations on Large-Scale Organic Farm

July 21 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm EDT

Note: This tour has changed from a bus tour to a caravan tour.

Join 2013 MOSES Farmer of the Year Charlie Johnson and his family for their annual field day and caravan tour in South Dakota! This year the importance of good crop rotation management in an organic system will be presented by local NRCS agronomist Eric Barsness. Eric will also speak on grazing practices, and in addition provide a rainfall simulator demonstration, showing how heavy rainfall can impact different soils and how good crop rotations and other management practices contribute to resilient, healthy soil.

Oat trials in their fourth year, conducted by SDSU on the Johnson Farm, will also be one of the caravan tour stops.

Lunch will be provided.

No need to preregister. Registration has changed to on-site for this event.
