The University of Minnesota Extension Service will be sponsoring a Research Update Field Day on interseeding cover crops and alfalfa in corn.

Extension specialists will lead a guided tour of the Rosemount Research Center's test plots and present their research on interseeding cover crops and alfalfa into corn production systems. Our short growing season here in the upper Midwest presents special challenges growing cover crops.
