Tyler Duerst

Tyler Duerst operates cropland within the Sugar River watershed. In addition to this, he works for his in-laws in Darlington WI on their medium-sized dairy farm. Within his grain operation, Tyler grows corn, soybeans, and wheat. He practices no-till and plants cover crops after harvesting wheat. Some of the acres Tyler currently manages were part of his family's original home farm. To preserve the land and facilitate its use for agriculture, his family opted to sell a significant portion of the property to Dane County, responding to overtures from developers. Consequently, the land will remain as open space, which includes areas designated for farming.

Tyler is the most recent farm join Dane Demo Farms, so the research plan for his farm are still being worked out. More to come in 2024.
