Soil Health: Farmer Information Meeting

                 Wondering what cover crop mixes are all about?  Have you heard your neighbor talk about trying new seed mixes?  Would you like to learn how local farmers are successfully using corn no-till in your area?  Please join us for this mid-winter discussion on what’s new and available for the 2018 season.  Merrimack County Conservation District (MCCD) and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) are holding a Farmers Information Meeting on Thursday, March 22, 2018 from 1:00 to 3:00PM at the NRCS Conference Room, 10 Ferry Street, Suite 211, Concord.  What to bring: your thoughts and experiences with cover crops and no-till planting to share with your neighbors.  We will have the experts in the room to discuss why cover crop mixes improve soil health and why moving beyond winter rye may improve your yields.

Please contact MCCD by phone (603) 223-6020 or email:info@merrimackccd.org for more information and to register for this meeting.
