In 2017, the Greenley Research Center celebrated its 40th field day with the unveiling of the 240-acre Grace Greenley Farm, which was officially deeded to the Center in 2015 from Miss Hortense Greenley’s estate upon her passing. The field day showcased live demonstrations and installations of several drainage water management and sub-irrigation systems by the Missouri Land Improvement Contractors Association (LICA). Presentations were given by several partners, including the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), Agri Drain and Ecosystem Services Exchange (ESE).
Missouri LICA will return to the Greenley Research Center this July to install the final phase of the country’s first holistic drain water recycling research project on the Grace Greenley Farm. The Conservation Showcase will host three public tours to demonstrate the drain water recycling management system, as well as the latest research being conducted on cover crops, buffer strips and bioreactors. Tours will be held on Monday, July 22; Wednesday, July 24; and Friday, July 26. All of the two-hour tours will begin at 1 p.m.
This project is being funded in part through a USDA-NRCS grant.
