Gail Fuller, a Kansas farmer and longtime no-tiller, will lead an all-day workshop Dec. 18 on the costs and benefits of integrating cover crops to improve soil health.

Fuller, who farms with cover crops, believes “integrating covers/biological primers is the best and fastest way to improve soil health.”

 

The workshop, “Do Cover Crops Help your “Bottom-line” — the Economic Benefits and Costs of Cover Crops upon Cash Crops, Livestock, and Soil Health?” will be from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 18, at the UNL Kimmel Education Center, 5985 G Road, Nebraska City.

Also making presentations during the workshop are:

  • Josh Lloyd, president of No-till on the Plains, with an economic analysis and how to use a new analysis tool;
  • Ray Ward, owner of Ward Laboratories, Kearney, Nebr., on the pluses and minuses of anhydrous ammonia on soil health and cover crops;
  • Experienced cover-crop growers and agribusiness representatives on crop rotations and practical solutions; and
  • NRCS representatives on resources and grants.
