WSU Cover Crop Field Day and No-Till Drill Training

Tuesday, October 19, 2021

Summer and winter cover crops are important in improving and maintaining soil quality. The WSU Puyallup Research and Extension Center will host a Cover Crop Field Day and No-Till Drill Training on October 19, 2021 from 10 AM to 12:30 PM. Ongoing demonstrations highlighted during the field day include: 1) Summer cover crops to reduce soil compaction and suppress weeds (fava bean, Sudangrass, tillage radish); 2) Winter cover crops (rye-vetch) no-till drilled into summer Sudangrass; 3) Winter cover crops planted with reduced tillage using a power harrow; and 4) Winter cover crops for biofuel (triticale, vetch, clover, fava bean). The no-till drill training will start at 12:00 PM. Completing the training is one way to qualify to borrow the drill for your own projects.
