Location: Online

After practicing no-till on their family farm for many years, Chris Gaesser and his parents began incorporating cover crops in 2010 in order to further improve soil health. Eventually, that path led Chris to grow cover crops for seed, to use on his own farm and to sell to other farmers through his business GX Agriculture. In this small grains shared learning call, Chris will share about the process of growing cereal rye and other small grains for cover crop seed, including some of the specifics of harvest and post-harvest handling.
