South Idaho Direct Seed Workshop

Direct seeding continues to make headway in the southern part of the State. The Direct Seed Workshop held each year in March helps address local issues and concerns.

Past topics have included fertility management in direct seeded grain, value of residue, equipment information and pest control options. A highlight each year is growers sharing their on-farm experiences with direct seed – what had worked in their operations and, equally valuable, what they changed over the years.
