Small Grains Meet Up: Cover Crops and Small Grains

Wednesday March 8, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

FREE Register

We asked and you answered – you want to talk about cover crops in your small grains crop rotations!

Come on out for a conversational, discussion-based hour with other farmers interested in cover cropping with their small grains. 

Brett Israel of 3Gen Organics will be there to kick off our discussion! 3Gen Organics is a multigenerational family farm in Wallenstein, Ontario, where they grow 540 acres of corn, soybeans, small grains and hay crops to fuel their organic pork production. Brett and his family are innovators determined to continue to improve their rotations, and one tool they use is cover crops! We’ll be inspired by 3Gen & then dive into all of our collective cover crop challenges. 

Tune in to share your own cover cropping experiences, ask questions and discuss solutions. Whether you’ve been growing grains for 50 years or you’re still looking for the perfect piece of land, you’re welcome to come and see what we can learn together.

This event is an OSCIA-recognized Knowledge Sharing Event for Ontario On-Farm Climate Action Fund (OFCAF) applicants with a project under the Cover Cropping category.
