MEDORA – Roger Ashley, area extension specialist with the Dickinson Research Extension Center of North Dakota State University, will lead a presentation at the Chateau de Mores Interpretive Center in Medora titled, "Conservation Agriculture: Sustainability into the Future Conservation Agriculture" on March 9, 2013, at 2 p.m. (MT) .
Conservation Agriculture is a new way of improving soil productivity, nutrient efficiency, and crop production while protecting the environment. This system integrates practices closely mimicking natural processes and cycles by working with Mother Nature. This system, first hinted at in southwest North Dakota in 1910, has evolved into a dynamic, site-specific practice reflective of resources available and the producer’s personal decisions. Ashley’s presentation will cover current research at the NDSU Dickinson Research Extension Center as well as other locations to illustrate how early progressive adopters are changing the face of agriculture in North Dakota.
This Red Roof Presentations program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will follow. For more information, call 701.623.4355.For a calendar of 2013 state historic site programs, contact the State Historical Society at 701.328.2666 history.nd.gov.
