Environmental issues are at the forefront of many people’s minds, including agriculture producers. University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension specialists will host two field days to teach tobacco producers how conservation tillage can help them run operations that are more environmentally friendly.
The first field day will be Aug. 5 in Christian County and will focus on dark tobacco. The second field day will take place Aug. 9 in Marion County and is geared toward burley production. Both begin at 4 p.m. local time. Altria is sponsoring both events.
