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, and discuss considerations made to convert his planter to no-till and how to make equipment adjustments for successful planting.We will also share information about the no-till grain drill available for use by the Connecticut River Watershed Farmers Alliance.
