Hello. The Rodale Institute's annual field day is scheduled for this July 20, in Kutztown, Pennsylvania!

Organic No-Till: Reducing the Environmental and Economic Costs of Farming Field Day
Friday July 20, 2007
8 :30 AM to 5:00PM
The Rodale Institute Experimental Farm, Kutztown, PA

This year, the event will focus mainly on mechanical cover crop management for organic no-till, addressing the many benefits of this management system and the challenges encountered by farmers and researchers around the country.

Topics to be included will feature results from the first three years of a large-scale research project on no-till systems focused on building and testing a second generation of no-till rollers under various field conditions, in diverse geographic areas and with different crops/cover crop combinations. (Full Agenda)

The Field Day will bring together farmers and researchers from Pennsylvania, Maryland and California to share with participants their own experiences producing crops using no-till techniques. As always, the event will feature equipment demonstrations and a wagon tour of the Rodale Institute Experimental Farm.

There is no registration fee for this event. A brown bag lunch will be provided for $15.00/person, pre-paid at least 48 hours prior to the event. Click here to register online. Or, call 610-683-6009 to register by phone. For driving directions to this event, click here.
