Join us for a discussion with Dr. Jaime Garzon focused on soil fertility in grasslands and climate-smart hayland management. His presentation will be followed by a facilitated farmer-to-farmer discussion on how you and your peers are managing your soil fertility. Come to listen, share your experiences, ask questions, troubleshoot, and be inspired about new systems that may make your own farm more climate resilient.

Dr. Garzon is an Assistant Extension Professor and Dairy Forage Educator at the University of Maine Cooperative Extension. His extension program seeks to develop and conduct educational outreach and applied research in the Maine dairy industry, emphasizing forage production, soil health, and regenerative pasture management.

The Climate Forums are brought to you by NOFA-VT and MOFGA. This event is one in a three-part series discussing Managing Agricultural Systems in a Changing Climate. At the registration link you can choose to attend whichever sessions you wish. Our first session is focused on nutrient management for crop producers, our second session focuses on grassland fertility management, and our third session discusses farm water planning for diverse production types.
