2021 : This drought is affecting everyone and there is no way to know how long this will last. It is a great time to be talking about strip tillage and no-till as ways to conserve soil moisture! Get on the bus on July 8th for the Soil Health Tour with NDSU, the Walsh County Soil Health Team and area producers! Let’s talk.Sarah Johnston, Soil Conservation District Manager
The last big tour we had with
Dr. Wick, Dr. Franzen and Naeem Kalwar.
Let’s do this again July 8th, 2021!
You won’t want to miss this big one! Join us on July 8th in Park River, ND to tour no-till and strip till fields with producers who are trying new things in their operations! If you’ve ever wanted to see strip tillage in a sugar beet rotation on Red River Valley Soils, now is your chance! We’ll visit fields farmed by Jamie Bennington and Lee & Jay Gudajtes using strip tillage and no-till in sugar beets. Before we head out to the field, we’ll enjoy talks from Dr. Abbey Wick (NDSU), Dr. David Franzen (NDSU), and Naeem Kalwar (NDSU) at the extension office in Park River. Special guest Carson Klosterman of Wyndmere, ND will discuss how he’s used strip tillage over the years. We’ll also touch on cover crops and soil erosion, especially as they relate to what farmers are dealing with in the field right now.
If you’d like to attend please RSVP by Tuesday, July 6th, 2021. We’d love to have enough food for everyone by getting those RSVPs. Beth from Beth’s Home Cooking is catering.
