The ground you walk over sets the stage for the food chain that feeds us all. That ground is teaming with under-cover crops, millions of tiny microbes that help increase energy and soil fertility.
Which under-cover crops would one grow? How would one even get started? These are both very important questions for anyone getting into biological farming, and at our upcoming seminar one of our sales agronomists, John Mayernak, will share the basics. He will present practical methods to grow and maintain under-cover crops with biologicals (bacteria, fungi, and their friends).
Mayernak brings with him years of experience as he was raised out west in irrigated alfalfa and cotton country and holds degrees from the University of Arizona and New Mexico State University. He came to us at AgriEnergy Resources in 1999, but after a few years, traveled south to help a customer with a disease of oak trees and just recently came back to us this past fall. It was a long time but the travels and experience with plant pathology, microbiology, and agronomy has increased his knowledge and sharpened his practical applications of biological farming.
Mayernak will be applying his experience and knowledge to help customers begin the journey into biological farming as well as assisting those who are on the path of biological farming. Whether you’re a new biological farmer or skilled, this session will be loaded with a wealth of information for everyone.
Our seminar “How to Thrive in Today’s Ag Economy – 10 Practical, Profitable Solutions” will be held from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Thursday, January 29 at the Chateau Hotel & Conference Center in Bloomington, Illinois.
