Fairview Soil Health Field Day Set for March 21st

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 16:09:20 CST

 Fairview Soil Health Field Day Set for March 21st Practices such as no-till and cover crops not only work in Oklahoma farming and ranching, they’re changing the landscape and making operations more sustainable and profitable. Hear from the farmers who are reaping the rewards of soil health at the Fairview Soil Health Field Day on March 21, 2017 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at Plymouth Valley Cellars south of Fairview. From the intersection of State Highways 60 and 58, head south six miles, then go one mile east on County Road EW 58 and one-tenth mile north on County Road NS 255. The site is on the east side of the road. Call 580-227-4844 extension 3 for more information.



“Soil health is absolutely the key for Oklahoma farmers to maintain a competitive edge,” said Michael Roberts, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) District Conservationist for Major County. “By letting the soil work for you rather than working the soil, producers are able to capture more water, suffer less erosion and grow healthier plants and livestock.”



The field day will focus on practical application of soil health principals with presentations by Jimmy Emmons, Dewey County farmer, Jim Johnson, Noble Foundation soil and crop consultant, Willie Durham, NRCS soil health specialist, and soil scientists Steve Alspach and Greg Scott. Local conservation district, OSU Extension, USDA Farm Service Agency and NRCS staff will also be available.



The workshop is free and a steak lunch will be provided. RSVP or request reasonable accommodations by March 14 with Major County Conservation District at 580-227-4844 extension 3 or cindy.bierig@ok.nacdnet.net.



Lunch will be sponsored by Sooner Cooperative, Inc., Farmers & Merchants National Bank, Fairview Savings and Loan Association, Farm Credit of Enid, Community National Bank, CGB Enterprises, Inc., Great Plains Cooperative, Oklahoma Wheat Commission, Rother Bros. Inc., Cheyenne Valley Ag Applicators, LLC, Major County Cattleman’s Association, Farmers Elevator Company—46 Grain Company, NuTech Seed LLC, Sorghum Partners Brand and Wheatland RC&D.
