Map and Directions

Join us at our 10th Annual Crops & Soils Field Day "A Decade of Innovation - Germination - Application."  The day's activities will show how the program is tackling challenges faced by Vermont farmers through researching new crops and new approaches to farming in northern New England.  Tours will be offered of research trials and sessions ranging from pasture management to precision agriculture as well as commercial production of new crops with tastings of end-products from crop research. 

On-site check-in gets underway at 9:15 a.m. with a guided tour starting at 10:00 a.m.  Participants will tour the more than 3,000 plots of research trials focused on cereal grain and soybean varieties; reduced tillage in silage corn; innovative crops such as hemp, dry beans, hops and milkweed; and cover crops and other soil health trials for forages and perennial grasses, vegetable and field crops.

Afternoon sessions will focus on perennial forages and pasture management; flame weeding technology for vegetables and hops; a look at hemp for fiber arts and CBD (Cannabidiol) oil; soil health and innovative equipment; hop yard pest management, crowning, and Vermont history of hops; and a grain tour.

In addition to our research tour in the morning and the afternoon session options, it has been confirmed that the Vermont Agency of Agriculture has approved this event for up to 4 hours of water quality training hours now needed under the Required Agricultural Practices (RAPs).  Under RAPs, all CSFOs, MFOs and LFOs are required to receive 4 hours of water quality training every 5 years.  Certified Crop Advisors will also be able to receive 4.5 CEU credits for the event.
