Webinar: The Use of Cover Crops in No-Till Organic Production in the US Midwest—A Case Study with Dry Beans in Iowa

February 1, 2023

1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Location: Webinar

Farmer’s reliance on frequent tillage for effective weed control remains a major concern for organic grain production. Conventional tillage practices severely disrupt soil structure, reduce soil organic matter, and increase soil erosion. In this webinar, Dr. Contina will discuss the benefits of using cover crops in organic no-till production as well as the challenges and opportunities for farmers and the public in general.
