June 27 meeting to focus on cover crops for prevented planting acres

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest On June 27 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m at the Ohio Northern University, McIntosh Center, Ballroom (yes, the same big Room A, upstairs, used for the Conservation Tillage Conference) cover crop experts and suppliers in Ohio will be featured in a meeting focused on how to handle the many prevented planting acres in northwest Ohio.David Brandt (Walnut Creek Seeds), Dwight Clary (Clary Farms LLC), Cody Beacom (Bird Agronomics), and Alan Sundermeier, OSU Extension, Wood County will talk cover crops. Weed control is also critical in prevented planting situations and Jeff Stachler, OSU Extension Auglaize County, will speak on the topic. Brad Wingfield, Wingfield Crop Insurance Service, will cover the numerous crop insurance issues farmers will have to work through.Additional questions and discussion will be fielded by Bret Margraf, Seneca Conservation District, and Jan Layman, president of Ohio No-Till Council. The focus will be on cover crop options. What will be your next cash crop? Do you want to graze or harvest forage? USDA announced this can be done Sept. 1, whereas the previous rule is Nov. 1. When can (or should) you plant certain cover crop mixes? What Cover Crop seeds are available? (Prices for several will rise.) Can leftover soybean seed be used? (Probably not allowed to plant until July 15. Can you get a refund of tech fee?) How much can you afford? Other than for grazing/forage, you may hope to pay no more than $20 per acre. More details will be announced soon. This program has multiple sponsors and supporters including the Ohio No-Till Council, OSU Extension, SWCDs, USDA, and Ohio Farm Bureau. This program will be free.last_img read more
