Farming practices beginning to change

Farming strategies like no-till planting and cover crops are not new practices in Door and Kewaunee Counties, but agronomist Nathen Nysse says more operators are beginning to take notice. Nysse has worked with farms that are members of conservation efforts like Peninsula Pride Farms and the Door-Kewaunee Demonstration Farm Network for many years as farmers try to get the most out of their land while also keeping their ecological footprint in check. As more information has gotten out there, Nysse says the conversations he has with other farmers have changed.

Nysse says the biggest change he has seen has been the wide spectrum of crops being planted with no-till practices, which now include corn, alfalfa, and soybeans.
