A Fall Look at Cover Crops Field Day: Borderview Research Farm

146 Line Road
Alburgh, 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 Roger & Claire Rainville. Under the leadership of Dr. Heather Darby, the NWCS program has been conducting cover crop research trials at Borderview Research Farm for more than 6 years. We will visit the latest cover cropping experiments including rye, oats, tillage radish and cover crop blends used to enhance soil health and as extra sources of livestock feed. We'll also show-and-tell cover cropping equipment used in Vermont.
