  • Today we are meeting with a reporter from #ohiofarmer magazine to share our recent research from sampling manure to determine nutrient levels. Why? Knowing the level of nitrogen and phosphorous in the manure allows farmers to spread the right amount of #manure for the growing plants and no extra to move to the river and lake. #dirtyjob #cleanlake #senecacounty

  • We chatted with some 4th graders from #mohawkLSD earlier this week about the importance of #covercrops when trying to prevent #erosion. One of our talented guys designed and built this demo from #repurposed things around his farm. If a picture is worth a thousand words, this demonstration is priceless. (Left to right-Conventional Tillage, No Tillage, Cover Crop Blend)  Which runoff water would you like to have in a river or lake?
