OAK Farmer Field Day Sept. 30 ava Zoom
Ohio Ag Connection - 09/10/2021

Join the Organic Association of Kentucky (OAK) for a Farmer Field Day Sept. 30 beginning at 1:30 p.m. ET via Zoom.

"Practical Tools for a Climate-Resilient Farm: Cover Crops, Biochar, and On-Farm Water Management - Virtual Farmer Field Day" will feature Barr Farms near Rhodelia.

Barr Farms has raised livestock and certified organic mixed vegetables on a fragipan (shallow soil) in the Ohio River Valley for 13 years. In response to increasing climate challenges -- heavy rain events, high humidity all year, wetter than normal summers, and the possibility of droughts in the fall -- Adam Barr has implemented several mitigating systems.

Learn about his use of annual ryegrass, biochar, drainage and other adaptations to increase farm resiliency. Join in a discussion of the pros and cons of various strategies for farming successfully in a changing climate. Q&A with Adam will follow the live presentation.

Funding for this event was made possible by the USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service. It is open to all and free to attend. Registration is required at

For those working in or with UK Extension, please note that this and all our virtual Field Days in 2021 are in KERS for Professional Development credit.
