Covering Ground: Conservation Tillage Practices, Benefits, and Equipment
Wednesday, September 18
10AM PDT // 11AM MDT // 12PM CDT // 1PM EDT
Farmers and researchers are increasingly experimenting with using combinations of regenerative practices to maximize impacts. Our September ROOTED session examines the theory -- and equipment--behind one of those combinations: reduced-tillage, no-till, and strip-tillage farming practices coupled with organic farming principles and practices.
This month we'll hear from Jeffrey Mitchell of the University of California-Davis, who is helping organize reduced and no-till experiments with a group of California organic produce farmers. Two of those farmers, Tom Willey and Scott Park, will join us for the session, and bring to life the planning, risk, and reward of these experiments.
Attendees will walk away from this session with a practical understanding of how reduced disturbance and cover crops can improve soil health, the equipment required to help reduced or no-till crops fourish, and the measured approach that must be taken when introducing new production techniques to a successful agricultural production system.
