Alternative crops are becoming more popular in the region, and Lamont County will be highlighting the trend
Farmers dealing with increased disease prevalence, insect pressure, and herbicide resistant weeds will be learning about alternative crops on Thursday at the St. Michael Hall in Lamont County for a seminar on ways to lengthen crop rotations.
Assistant Agriculture Fieldman for Lamont County, Lindsay Benbow, says they will have three speakers in attendance.
Benbow notes that the seminar is extremely popular, as they have had to stop taking registrants. She says that farmers still interested can contact the Lamont County office and be put on a waiting list, by calling 780-895-2585.
