Come join UVM and UNH Extension and the Connecticut River Watershed Farmers Alliance for a field demonstration of equipment used for farm viability, soil health, and water quality.

Steven Stocking, farmer and Connecticut River Watershed Farmers Alliance Board member, will show us his no-till corn planter in action. We will be using the planter to drill into sod ground.

We will discuss considerations made to convert his planter to no-till and how to make equipment adjustments for successful planting.

We will also talk about the no-till grain drill available for use by the Connecticut River Watershed Farmers Alliance.

Birch Meadow Road, Fairlee, VT 05045

Meet and park in the barnyard by the equipment shed.

Rain or shine.
