No-Till On The Plains to Host Soil Health Workshop in Enid, Okla. July 6th - Get Registered Now!

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 12:20:09 CDT

No-Till On The Plains to Host Soil Health Workshop in Enid, Okla. July 6th - Get Registered Now! No-till on the Plains is hosting a free soil-health workshop, coming up July 6, 2017 beginning at 8:30 a.m. at the Northern Oklahoma College’s Gantz Student Center, in Enid, Okla. to address a variety of soil health topics. Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Associate Farm Director Carson Horn reached out to one of the event’s organizers, Steve Swaffar, to talk about this workshop. You can hear their entire conversation by clicking or tapping the LISTEN BAR below, at the bottom of this story.


“We have a full day’s agenda, with four expert speakers. They will all focus on soil health, each one in a little bit different area.”


Topics to be discussed include the restoration process and regeneration of your soil’s health on grazing lands, how to use crop rotations and native grazing areas to restore healthy soil, how you can use cover crops to help compliment your perennial grazing systems and how to estimate forage production and stocking rates on your property, and also how cover crops can be implemented in a no-till rotation.


“Farming is a business and we’ll try to help folks understand that by switching to a no-till system and making a change in your mindset, you can help improve your bank account and your efficiency,” he contended. “It’s a wholistic approach to how you operate and run your farm or ranch.”


Those with an interest of any kind in no-till farming practices are invited to attend, free of charge. Lunch will be provided, but those planning to attend are asked to register as soon as possible, due to limited availability.


Registration is available on the No-till on the Plains website. Visit the Oklahoma Farm Report calendar page or call 785-210-4549 for more information.
