Saturday April 18 

What great speakers we had. John Butchee taught us about crop rotation. He taught us about how important cover crops are and about evaportransportation. He did experiments to teach us how to tell if crops have too much salt, water infiltration, soil pH, and how important it is to know all of this for the health of the plants. 140 more words
