The Hughes family farm will host a workshop July 12 touting the benefits of cover crops and small grains, according to a press release.
The field day will explain how cover crops control weeds, reduce erosion and boost soil nutrients, which can all help save money.
The event is a joint effort between the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service, UW-Madison and the Practical Farmers of Iowa, according to the release.
The event runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Hughes farm, located at 4031 S. Highway 51, Janesville.
Local and regional agriculture experts will attend.
The Hughes family grows conventional, organic and specialty crops on its 5,000-acre farm south of Janesville.
