To help landowners learn more about establishing good native grasses, a field day will be held tonight at 6 PM at the ISU Southeast Iowa Research and Demonstration Farm, located southeast of Crawfordsville. Johnson County Regional Extension Director Gene Mohling says the field day is a response to the 39th Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) signup.  He says many bids “included putting native grasses or native pollinator habitat on a portion of the CRP acres.” Field day topics will include species selection, seeding mixes, seeding methods, weed control and maximizing wildlife benefits.
