University of Maine Extension in association with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is offering a No-till Corn workshop for dairy and forage producers on April 13 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Waterville Elks Club.
Participants will hear about techniques and practices to improve profitability on their farms. The workshop will feature soil health expert Ray Archuleta from NRCS and Mark Anderson from Landview Farms in New York.

A $20 workshop fee includes lunch. The workshop is part of a research project funded by Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program (NESARE).
