Forage Field Day

Do you have questions about your forage stand health and fertility management strategies? If so, you’re not alone. These images show before and after comparisons of a field that benefited from an updated fertility plan. Did you know that for every ton of grass hay harvested 12lbs of Phosphorous and 48lbs of potassium are removed from the soil? How can this information be used to increase stand health, yields, and profitability?
Join us for our Forage Field Day on Saturday, August 28th to get the answers to these questions and more! Additional information included on flyer. Register at
