Relay-Cropping Rye and Soybeans
Alec planted cereal rye in the fall and then planted soybeans into the rye in the spring. We’ll meet at Alec’s homeplace and then board a hay rack to travel to a nearby field to get a look at the cereal rye and soybeans just prior to rye seed harvest. Snacks and beverages will be provided.
Alec Amundson operates Green Country Farms in Mitchell County, Iowa, where he raises corn, soybeans and rye. The Amundsons use cover crops, no-till and have been relay cropping since 2018.
