Cover Crop Field Day

The McKean County Conservation District, in partnership with Penn State Extension and the Potter County Conservation District, will host a Cover Crop Field Day demonstration open to the public. The event will be held on Thurs. Oct. 13th beginning at 10 am at the Jim Detrick farm, east of Kane. Following the presentation at Detrick’s, there will be a second program at the Knauer farm east of Port Allegany.

In July, staff from Penn State University planted cover crops with an interseeder in planted corn rows at both farms, and several in Potter County. The field day will show the demonstration test plots and have guest speakers on cover crops and soil health. Those who pre-register will receive a gift of a soil test kit and cover crop field guide book. Refreshments will be served.

Financial and other support for this project is provided by the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act, which is administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Call the District at 814-887-4001 to register. Driving directions can also be provided when you call.
