While small-grain crops certainly aren’t as nutrient hungry as corn, lack of fertility can lead to lower yields, potentially lower grain or seed quality and field variability that can lead to weed and harvest headaches.
Do you know an exemplary farmland owner who has built constructive relationships with farm tenants, stewarded land on behalf of rural communities or the broader landscape or helped extend opportunities to beginning farmers?
We are just a week out from the registration deadline for the 2020 small grains conference in Springfield, Illinois.
This event gathers the top small grains growers, researchers and buyers from the region to share their expertise on making the most of these crops. Learn about growing small grains, cover cropping and the benefits of an extended rotation.
