Join the Antrim and Kalkaska Conservation Districts for our annual Soil Health Field Day! This years event will be hosted at the Iott Seed Potato Farm in Kalkaska County. We are excited to highlight the ongoing 3 year cover crop field trail. This season marks year 2 in the trials and we will have soil sample results back in time for the field day. Come prepared with many questions as Dr. Bird and Marisol Quintanilla of Michigan State University will be there to answer any questions about the trials!
