May's newsletter highlights upcoming workshops (crop scouting and weed ID, using a roller crimper for cover crops, and tractor safety), a new weather webinar series, and recap of some recent events at the Haskell Ag Lab. You can also find information on the 2023 NE On-Farm Research results and the soil health cycle.

With over 40 attendees, the Cover Crop Field Day on April 30 was a great success at the Haskell Ag Lab. The weather held up long enough to do the featured guided tours through three research trials, showcasing the latest finding and practical insights into cover crop management and benefits. The field day also consisted of presentations as a more in-depth look at the cover crops and research trials and a soil health demonstration by NRCS. 

Studies in the 2023 Research Results book cover various topics, including crop production, fertility and soil management, non-traditional products, cover crops, crop protection and equipment.
Forage Field Day - August 6

 After connecting with forage extension experts in South Dakota and identifying a lack of outreach, a collaborative effort to put on an annual field day was kicked off in 2021 with SDSU Extension. Initially held at the SDSU Southeast Research Farm and Haskell Ag Lab in 2021, the program has rotated back and forth between locations since 2022. Haskell hosted 2021, 2022, and will host on August 6, 2024. The event has brought in 50 – 100 participants annually and been able to secure $3,000 in grant and sponsorship support.

The focus of the April 30 Cover Crops Field Day at Haskell Ag Lab near Concord, NE is on learning about fall-planted cover crops tailored to diverse management goals. The field day will feature guided tours through three research trials, showcasing the latest findings and practical insights into cover crop management and benefits.
