On-Farm Experiments Field Day

  • Sogn Valley Farm 4830 360th St. Cannon Falls United States (map)

Farmers are constantly innovating to improve the health of their land and quality of their crops. This year we are integrating on-farm experiments and unique conservation efforts into our regular vegetable production. Join hosts Organic Seed Alliance and The Good Acre for a field day on the farm to learn about these efforts and get inspired. Field day participants can expect to learn more about the following on-farm innovations.

  • Sap analysis and fertigation of high-tunnel tomatoes. Sap analysis uses a plant’s sap to measure mineral levels and identify nutrient deficiencies, so that they can be corrected with custom fertigation treatments.

  • Interseeding cover crops with vegetable crops.

  • Trialing and breeding open-pollinated sweet peppers for adaptation to northern climates.

  • Basic seed saving for farmers with Koby Jeschkeit-Hagen from Seed Sages.

  • Flowering cover crop mixes for pollinator habitat.

Pre-registration is encouraged.  Snacks and water will be provided. Please bring your own brown bag lunch. This field day is being offered free of charge thanks in part to a Minnesota Department of Agriculture Specialty Crop Block Grant and their AGRI Sustainable Agriculture Demonstration Grant Program.
