TOWANDA, Pa. — The time has come for our 6th annual Soil Health Conference. This IS the place to be if you are looking for the latest on the soil health craze. What are people doing with no till and cover crops these days? This year we will have two of the best speakers in the nation come talk to us about what they are doing to cut costs, cut time in the field, make a better product, and most importantly, make them more profitable.
These guys are really looking at the bottom line. See how they have cut fertilizer bills significantly, along with seed bills, spray applications and the like. They are using less horsepower, less diesel fuel, lime, etc. Sound too good to be true? Hear it right from the horse’s mouth. These guys are living it. They are planting “green” and relay cropping and a whole lot of other things that we may not even be familiar with.
Join us on March 18th at the Wysox Fire Company and hear from Rick Clark, farming in Williamsport Indiana, and Russell Hedrick, from North Carolina. This has been an extremely successful conference in years past. Reservations are $15/person before March 6th, and $20 after that. Registration and information are on our website- bccdpa.com. Call Kevin Brown (570-485-3105) at the Bradford County Conservation District for any other details. The conference will run from 8:30 to 3:30, lunch provided with payment.
