Reducing Tillage in Organic Vegetables

July 13, 2023

4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Location: Stoughton, WI

Reducing tillage in organic vegetables can be tricky. We will see several techniques on this field tour and discuss some of the pros and cons of each. As effective termination of cover crops and subsequent weed control are essential to successful cover crop based no-till planting, a portion of the tour will focus on weed control after six rye termination methods in a side-by-side replicated trial. We will also do a water infiltration test demonstration on the trial plots. Do plan to bring your own beverage and stay after the field tour for continued conversation.
