Farm ponds can be an enjoyable and beneficial resource for landowners if managed properly. To assist landowners interested in maintaining a farm pond, the U-T Extension Office has scheduled a Pond and Fisheries Management Field Day for Tuesday, November 7th.

Registration is free and begins at 3 p.m. at the field day location at 4109 Summertown Highway in Lewis County.

Extension agents will be on hand to discuss pond construction, identifying pond weeds and their control, pond renovation, stocking rates and harvest recommendations among other frequently asked questions about farm ponds.
