So as many of you know Lively H Farms is all about No-Till farming and has been since papa started farming here in the United States!
The University of Kentucky is conducting a study testing nutrient run off in no-till fields!
This is a 10 year study and one of the locations is right here at Lively H Farms!
The boys have been busy building berms with NRCS to control the flow of water into the measuring apparatus!
There are 4 flumes, with 2 berms on each side!
This project is funded by the USDA!
I am excited to see the results of this project!
Here are a few photos so far, cannot wait to show you all more and fill you in with more information!
Hey, it's me again Catlin. Just wanted to give you a little more detail about what my plan is for " A Growers Granddaughters" blog. My intention is to keep you up to date on my life adventures in agriculture such as research projects, a little gardening, and my grandads farm,Lively H, which inspired me to pursue a career in agriculture. This blog is not only for you to read but also see all the behind the scenes on the farm, and educate you more on agriculture topics. If you have any questions, please comment, or email me, If there is a topic in agriculture you are unsure about, shoot me and email.
