Breakouts will target individual cropping systems and other issues including, grain, forage, vegetables, and equipment. Participants will have the opportunity to present their work in a Posters & Pints session. This meeting will be a great opportunity to meet and visit with cover crop experts and students researching cover crops to help you find the answers you seek. The second day will include a field tour of the latest cover crop research and demonstrations at the USDA NRCS Big Flats Material Center.
