Join us as we tour three Fox Demo Farms to learn how producers are incorporating innovative conservation practices into their agricultural systems to benefit soil health, water quality and wildlife habitat.
The tour will showcase how cover crops, no-till practices and grazing can rebuild organic matter and increase biological activity in the soil, ultimately improving infiltration rates and reducing soil erosion. In addition, the tour will include edge-of-field monitoring used to measure volume of runoff, phosphorus and sediment. We will also explore how these practices can potentially improve habitat and wildlife in the watershed.
