Event Description

Join Sid Bosworth, Extension Associate Professor of the UVM Plant and Soil Science Department for an introduction on how to choose forage crops and prepare the soil for fall seeding. Late summer is a good time to consider a new seeding for pastures or haycrops, provided there is adequate soil moisture. This webinar will review the many species and mixture options for a new seeding, discuss site preparation and post seeding management. Sid Bosworth serves as the state Extension Agronomist. He has been in this position since 1990. Sid has taught courses in forage crops, turf management and weed ecology and has conducted applied research in the areas of alfalfa management, nutrient and manure management of cool season grasses and corn for silage, weed control, pasture management, forage quality and organic wheat production. His extension programs focus on crop and pasture management and utilization, integrated crop management and grasses for biomass energy. He developed and maintains the Vermont Crops and Soils Homepage (http://pss.uvm.edu/vtcrops). He has a Ph.D. in crop physiology from the University of Kentucky and a M.S. in agronomy and B.S. in animal science from Auburn University.
