ABIE, Neb. (AP) — Cover crops as part of a diverse cropping system will be part of the discussions during organic farm tours next month.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension says the first tour will begin at 1:30 p.m. Aug. 16 at the Larry Stanislav farm two miles north of Abie in eastern Nebraska's Butler County. Stanislav will discuss his cropping system and how he's reduced tillage and managed weeds by using a roller crimper and flamer.
The next tour begins at 3:30 p.m. at Randy Fendrich's farm nearby.
After the tours, the Fendrich family will serve a free dinner at 5 p.m. Reservations are needed. Call 402-584-3837 to RSVP or for more information about the tours or to get directions.
