ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

On Sept.7 starting at 10 a.m., the Lower Skunk River Watershed Project will be hosting an operation/implement tour of Steve Berger’s farm in Wellman, with a tour of an established bioreactor site on Rob Stout’s farm outside of West Chester.

After the tour and discussion with Berger, a free lunch will be provided and served by Washington County Iowa Pork Producers. After lunch the group will travel to Stout’s bioreactor site to discuss data collected by Iowa Soybean Association regarding nutrient reduction by the bioreactor since its installation.

Both Steve and Rob have a vast history in cover crop usage and conservation practices and have been speakers at numerous events across the state.

A free charter bus ride will be available to those in the southeast Iowa area. The bus will pick up at the E3 Center parking lot, across from Aldi’s, in Mount Pleasant at 8:30 a.m. and will return before 4 p.m. Seating is limited for the bus ride.

For more information, special accommodations and/or to RSVP for the bus ride and/or lunch, contact Miranda Haes, Project Coordinator at 319-385-2824 ext. 3, or miranda.haes@ia.nacdnet.net by Sept. 5, 4 p.m.
