WAGM quotes Johnson in report on rotating crops
WAGM (Channel 8 in Presque Isle) quoted Steven Johnson, crops specialist with University of Maine Cooperative Extension, in a report on rotating crops. Rotating crops serve many purposes, and the practice is part of a scientific program at UMaine Extension in Presque Isle where various crops are planted and studied. “It’s a three-year study, and so there’s a mirror of potatoes and small grains on the other side,” said Johsnon. Seed for a future year’s crop are often sown when the current crop is planted, according to the report.
