CONWAY, N.H. — UNH Cooperative Extension is hosting a three part series for farmers in New Hampshire focused on cover cropping as a conservation practice. The series will start Tuesday 2/23/21 with a focus on dairy and forage cropping systems.
Dr Samantha Corcoran-Glaze from UMass Extension will discuss the newest research on nitrogen and phosphorus uptake by cover crops, and how cover crop management practices affect uptake. We will learn about web-based cover crop selection tools and crop rotation-based cover crop planning for vegetable systems on 2/25 with Jason Lilley of UMaine Extension. The series will be capped with a fast paced lightning round on 4/1, with both farmers and scientists providing 2-5 minute presentations. We hope to address many cover crop topics in this fun and fast passed lightning round.
Join us as we learn and explore this important topic together. Please register for each meeting individually. Pesticide credits are pending for the 2/23 and 2/25 dates.
All sessions are 1:00-2:30pm
