A Fall Look at Cover Crops Field Day: Tour of Farms in St. Albans Bay

St. Albans, VT

Cover crops are becoming more prevalent throughout Vermont on all farm types and sizes. Join the University of Vermont (UVM) Extension — Northwest Crops and Soils Team (NWCS), Champlain Valley Crop, Soil and Pasture Team (CVCSP), and Vegetable and Berry Program — for a week-long look at cover crops! See, learn, and share information on growing successful cover crops in our northern region.

Join us for one (or all four) of our Cover Crop Field Days! Each field day will be offered from 1 to 3 p.m.; light refreshments will be served. The field days are free but please pre-register at: http://vtcovercrop.eventbrite.com.

This field day is being hosted by UVM Extension's NWCS and area St. Albans Bay farmers. On this field day, we will meet at the UVM Extension office in St. Albans and then tour several dairy farms in the St. Albans Bay that have been planting cover crops for a number of years. We'll look at short- and long- season corn and their impact on cover crop planting date and establishment, as well as some interseeded plantings. We'll meet at the UVM Extension office in St. Albans.
