“Polyplanter” Field Day, June 9, 2015–University of KY

On June 9th from 10 AM to 1 PM EST at the Berries on Bryan Station Farm, 4744 Bryan Station Rd., Lexington, KY, a great field day opportunity is available for market growers throughout our region. A new experimental machine system developed by John Wilhoit and Larry Swetnam in the Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering Department at the University of Kentucky shows promise as a low-cost way of achieving the precision needed for mechanical cultivation for bare ground vegetable production using trickle irrigation.
