Extension

Posted: Wednesday, May 28th, 2014 at 2:36 am

Title: Extension
Description: A field day to demonstrate roller crimper and strip tillage use in fruit and vegetable production will be Thursday, June 5 from 5–7:30 p.m. at the ISU Horticulture Research Station, 55519 170th Street, Ames, Iowa. The field day also will discuss various cover crop establishment and termination techniques.

There is a steady increase in the number of growers adopting cover crops in their production systems. Since sustainable and organic growers use very few or no chemicals to terminate their cover crops, roller crimping is a sought after termination method – especially when rye is used as a cover crop.

Field day demonstrations will include operation of the Rhodale Institute designed roller crimper and the strip tillage equipment (Hiniker 6000). Other equipment at the research station also will be available to view.

The workshop is free for all to attend and is supported by the Iowa Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association, Practical Farmers of Iowa, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, Leopold Center and the USDA-Specialty Crop Research Initiative.

Light snacks and drinks will be provided. For more details regarding the field day, contact Ajay Nair at 515-294-7080 or by email atnairajay@iastate.edu.
