Come and see alternative methods for inter-seeding cover crops in standing corn including aerial, highboy and the Penn State Inter-seeder. Cover crops have been established in corn using aerial seeding and highboy seeding. Demo plots of 12 different cover crops may be viewed. The Hagie Highboy Cover Crop Seeder will be demonstrated and the Penn State Inter-seeder will be on display. Visit the soil pit to see cover crop roots close up. The field day is located in SW Michigan, but buses are being provided from Mid Michigan and the Thumb so producers from around the state can explore these emerging inter-seeding technologies.
