August 5th, 2016: Cover Crops


Wisconsin’s weather lately has made it a marvelous home for great plant growth, from crops to invasive species.  This allows for insect pests like the Japanese Beetles and Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs to having record years gaining traction in our state.  Keep an eye out for these and other pests in your garden coming into the end of the summer.  Join PJ Liesch as host as Claire Strader gives an informational presentation on cover crops and how to optimize their use in the garden.
