Waverly, Iowa – Soil Health Partnership is putting on another year of Field Days in late summer and early fall.
Field Days are events in Midwestern states where farmers can learn how changing nutrient management and tillage strategies, along with cover crop adoption, can make farmland more productive, efficient and sustainable.
The states that have these events are Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Nebraska. Other states like Missouri, Minnesota, and Wisconsin are still planning to have one, but nothing is official yet.
There are going to be about 70 Field Days total in the Midwest. In Iowa, they run from July 12th to August 30th, with the closest one to Floyd County being in Waverly on August 30th.
The group that puts on these events is Soil Health Partnership, which is a data-driven program working to quantify the benefits of practices that support soil health, from an economic as well as environmental standpoint.
