Location: Online

Iowa Learning Farms, in partnership with the Iowa Nutrient Research Center, and Conservation Learning Group, is hosting a free virtual field day on RegenPGC, Regenerating America’s Working Landscapes to Enhance Natural Resources and Public Goods through Perennial Groundcover. Central to the approach is developing and de-risking perennial groundcover (PGC) systems, where a perennial cover crop is planted once and then persists for multiple years alongside annual crops such as corn and soybean.
