ICC Hosts Cover Crop Field Day March 27

Illinois Central College will host a Cover Crop Field Day on Friday, March 27, from 3-5 pm, on the East Peoria Campus. The field day will include a short presentation and plot tours for area farmers and agricultural businessmen.

Pete Fandel, an Associate Professor in agriculture and Illinois Council on Best Management Practices Cover Crop Specialist, is currently working with cover crop research at various locations in Central Illinois including many plots on the Illinois Central College campus. Participants will learn about different cover crop species and what some of the benefits of each species are, and will have the opportunity to ask questions regarding crop cover management in their own operations.

Participants may park in Lot G, which is off Hosta Lane, just to the south of the main entrance to ICC off Illinois Rt. 24.
