Still trying to figure out weed control? Have questions about organic corn, soybeans, alfalfa, and/or sorghum? Want to learn more about soil health? Then you are not going to want to miss this upcoming organic field day on Thursday, September 6 from 9am-4pm at Stoller Organic Dairy Farm LLC, 10451 Eby Road, Sterling, Ohio.
The Stoller family have been Organic Valley members for years and are excited to share how they manage their cows, pastures, crops, and rotations. Currently, they’re milking 180 cows and grow organic corn, soybeans, wheat, rye, as well as pasture, alfalfa, and clover. Guests will be able to check out their crops, along with their extensive organic corn & fertility plots. They also will be displaying equipment they use for weed control – harrows, rotary hoes, cultivators, Einbock tine weeder, and an optic guidance cultivator.
Gary Campbell will be discussing how effective weed control begins in the soil and will be offering various programs to help manage your weeds. He’ll be joining other speakers from the Stoller Family, Doebler Hybrids, Blue River Hybrids, Fowler Seed marketing, Masters Choice Hybrids, Jabb of the Carolina, Organic Valley, and JDS Seeds.
For more information or to RSVP (by August 31), contact John Daniel Schlabach (JDS Seeds) at 330.683.7321 or 330.465.1794. A barbecue chicken lunch will be served at noon.
Hope to see you there!
