Brown County Fair going on this week

The countdown on the sign out front of the Brown County Fairgrounds went down to zero, and it is fair time in Georgetown. Of course, it began raining overnight on Monday and Tuesday morning has seen some light showers throughout the area. The rain is not enough to hamper the fair so come on out the fair.

The week is jammed packed with events. Check out the entire schedule of events at www.thelittlestatefair.com.

Soil Health and Cover Crop Field Day

The use of cover crops is becoming more and more popular with the ideas of improving the soil, reducing erosion and reducing the loss of nutrients and fertility in the soil, not to mention improving water quality. There are several different crops that can serve as a cover crop and there are several growing on the plots that will be part of the field day on Wednesday, Oct. 7. The program will begin at 5:30 p.m. and is scheduled to last a couple of hours.

To register for the program contact the Adams County Soil and Water Conservation District at 544-1010. The field day will be located on Peterson Road which is on the south side of SR 32 about 3 miles west of Peebles. There will be signs posted to assist you in finding the plots. Please register by Oct. 6.

Presentations will be given concerning the use of cover crops and some of benefits that different crops can provide. The cover crops include radishes, crimson clover, rape, cereal rye, rye grass, and many more. Plan to attend and bring a lawn chair. Soup and sandwiches will be provided.
