IN-Purdue Extension Organic Agriculture Field Day

August 2 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

On Thursday, August 2, 2018, Purdue Extension Organic Agriculture, in collaboration with Jasper County SWCD, will host a field day at Living Prairie Family Farms in Wolcott, Indiana.  Jason Federer, owner of Living Prairie Family Farms, operates a split operation, managing both conventional and certified organic grain production.

At this field day, you will have the opportunity to see organic corn and soybean crops, alongside conventional and transitional crops.  Topics to be covered include organic row crop tillage and cultivation equipment, transition strategies and crop rotations, managing split operations, and interseeding cover crops.  Morning rotations will include equipment, organic crop fields, and interseeded cover crop plots.  The afternoon will serve as an open networking time to continue discussions with farmers, equipment dealers, and others, and to look at equipment and crops in more detail.

Registration is required to attend this field day.  A registration link will be available on this page later in June.  Visit https://www.purdue.edu/dffs/organicag/our-team/ to enter your name and email address in order to stay informed about this field day and other Purdue Extension Organic Agriculture programs.  You can also contact Michael O’Donnell directly with questions about the field day (see contact information below).
