MEDIA ALERT — Chilean No-till Expert

WHAT:
Media availability for visiting international authority on no-till farming.

WHO:
Carlos Crovetto Lamarca, a Chilean farmer and author of “Stubble Over the Soil – The Vital Role of Plant Residue in Soil Management to Improve Soil Quality.”

WHEN:
2:15 p.m. Monday, March 17

WHERE:
207 Johnson Hall, Washington State University, Pullman

WHY:
Washington’s and Idaho’s Palouse country suffers heavy erosion at times, including this winter. Senior Lamarca’s views of this environmental problem should be highly newsworthy in this region. Senior Lamarca has 20 years experience with no-till farming, which greatly reduces erosion. He has written a book on the subject and has spoken on the subject all over the world. We are told his English is excellent.

CONTACT:
Terence L. Day at the numbers or e-mail address below. Please let me know ahead of time if you have special needs. TV stations could get footage earlier in the day of Senior Lamarca inspecting Whitman County farms.
