Cover Crop and Manure Field Day set for April 6

The Allamakee SWCD will be hosting a Cover Crop and Manure Field Day on Thursday, April 6 from 1:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.  We will meet at the Scott Ness Farm, 1509 Family Lane, Waterville, IA and then drive to at least 2 additional sites in the county.  We will show cover crops that were established by broadcasting or drilling in the fall.  Manure was injected or broadcast before or after cover crop planting, depending on the site.  You’ll be able to see that cover crops and manure can work well together and learn from the local NRCS agronomist, SWCD project coordinator, and other producers.  No RSVP is required.  In the event of inclement weather, an announcement will be made on KNEI as well as the Allamakee SWCD website at  If you have questions, please email Sara Berges at or call 563-568-2246 ext. 3.
