The Fayette County and Effingham County Soil & Water Conservation Districts are teaming up to host a Cover Crop Meeting on Tuesday, March 22 from 9am-12pm at the Carriage House Events Center in Altamont. At the meeting, the use of cover crops to help with the state’s Nutrient Loss Reduction Strategy will be discussed and explained. Tony Pals of the Fayette County SWCD office says they have many speakers lined up to help those who used cover crops before and also to educate those people who have not used cover crops in the past.
Pre-registration for the event is needed and Pals says people have through the end of this week to register.
Again, the numbers to call to pre-register for the event are 217-347-7107, extension 3 for the Effingham SWCD office and 618-283-2311, extension 3 for the Fayette County SWCD office.
