Panhandle No-till Field Days June 24-27 - UNL CropWatch, May 23, 2013

May 23, 2013

The Panhandle No-till Partnership will be hosting six field days in late June to look at continuous no-till crop production on dryland farms.

Presentations will cover all aspects of continuous no-till crop production in the Panhandle and field days will provide opportunities so producers can visit with other no-till producers. Growers are encouraged to bring their questions and share ideas with other producers interested in learning more about continuous no till crop production.

Production and marketing of field peas will be discussed at each field day. Field peas are becoming an established crop in continuous no-till crop production in this region and are being used to transition from a fall harvested crop to winter wheat.
