OGRAIN (Organic Grain Resources and Information Network at the University of Wisconsin – Madison) and MOSES (Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service) will be co-hosting an organic field day at Doudlah Farms in Evansville, Wisconsin from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Thursday, August 11.
This event will explore a number of topics including, weed control, crop rotations, soil and human health, budgeting, crop insurance, dry bean production, and no-till soybeans. In fact, our sales agronomist, Gary Campbell, will be discussing the roles soil biology, starter fertilizers, foliar feed, and proper residue decomposition play in organic corn production.
Other speakers include Organic Consultant Gary McDonald, Emerging Markets Specialist Paul Dietmann, University of Wisconsin – Madison Researcher Dr. Erin Silva, M.D. Dr. Robert Waters, Regional Soil Health Specialist Justin Morris, Senior Organic Specialist Harriet Behar, and of course Farmer Mark Doudlah.
Mark Doudlah operates a 1,450 acre diversified organic grain operation producing corn, soybeans, ancient grains, cover crop seed (Aroostook Rye, Purple Bounty Vetch, 4010 Forage Peas), dry beans, and canning crops.
This $10 event is open to all farmers and those interested in organic farming. Lunch will be included for all those that pre-register at mosesorganic.org.
The Doudlah Field Day will kick off at the Cooksville Community Center, 11204 N. Church Street, Evansville, Wisconsin 53536.
