On August 14, 2013 the University of Wisconsin is holding an Agronomy Field Day at the Marshfield Ag Research Station. The line-up of speakers looks outstanding and CEU credits are available for Certified Crop Advisers.
I will be speaking out at the cover crop plots looking at how we can use cover crops as forages and benefit the soil at the same time.
For past blog posts on using cover crops for forages looks here and here.

Don’t you worry about annual ryegrass becoming a weed in rotations containing wheat?
Andrew, It sure can. That is why I have several posts on the blog about killing ryegrass. However, I hear from folks in my area that there is now a chemical or two that are working very well to kill Annual Ryegrass growing in wheat. I hear that Jamie Scott had great success with that. I saw his wheat fields and they were super clean where he had use ARg for a number of years. Bets case scenario…kill the ARg dead! 🙂 Dave
