McKean County Conservation District and Penn State Cooperative Extension sponsored a Cover Crop Field Day held on April 7, 2011. The field day was held at cover crop test plots located at the County Complex in Smethport with 20 people in attendance.

The field day featured discussions on the Potential of No-Till Systems in McKean County with No-Till Consultant Joel Myers and Cover Crops and Alternative Crops in Cold Climates by Penn State Cooperative Extension Educator Bill Waltman. Throughout the day, farmers were able to comment and address concerns on proper planting setups due to changing field conditions and various crop selections as well as view demonstrations on No-Till, Planters, Cover Crops and Soils.
