A one-of-a-kind cover crop seeder/corn detassler built by a local man will be demonstrated during a cover crop walk Aug. 24 at the Mercer Wildlife Area.
Brother Nick Renner, a grain farmer and member of the Mercer County Soil and Water Conservation District board, bought a 1970 corn detassler in Illinois in January and attached an air seeder to it. [More]
