Farming doesn’t come easy to most. Wondering what happens behind the farmer in the tractor? Not only do the farmers farm but also they grow their knowledge in different fields to help them learn the best things to do for their crops. Local farmer and Chemgro salesman Jason Dawson organized the first Field Day at Coan Stage Church in Heathsville on Wednesday, August 22.
“I’ve been working with this company for three years and we finally built up enough to get a field day going,” Dawson said. “We’re going to look at the field plots first with corn and beans and then we’re going to have Pete Bradley and Sons talk about the equipment they have here.”
Approximately 40 people were on hand for the demonstration.
J.T. Elliott from Chemgro stated that they planted the plot in wet conditions and then it turned dry and now here lately it has been wet again; but in that three to four-week time when it was dry things seemed to hold on and it looks like the crop is better than expected.
