At 1:45 the tour will be at 20075 Xandau Avenue, Jordan. In this field a winter kill seed mix interseeded into standing corn.
The final stop will be at 2:25 pm at West Evergreen Street, Belle Plaine. Here a winterkill seed mix was interseeded into standing corn.
Everyone is welcome to attend all or any part of the tour and there is no charge. The Scott Soil and Water Conservation District, Scott Watershed Management Organization, and the Prior Lake-Spring Lake Watershed District are also partnering to put on the tour. Representatives will be there to answer any questions you may have about cover crops.
