Mechanized No-Till Organic Vegetable Experimental Collaborative / Year 2 Report
April 6, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT
Come learn about continued innovations in reducing/eliminating tillage in field-scale organic vegetable crops from the farmers leading the movement! Three California working farms–Phil Foster Ranches, Full Belly Farm, and Park Farming Organics–will report on their two years’ of research in commercial-scale, no-till organic vegetable production under Conservation Innovation Grant (CIG)-supported field experimentation. Topics covered will include cover-crop biomass digestion under plastic and weed barrier fabric, seasonal grazing trials, novel equipment, and investigation of fungal-to-bacterial ratios. We’ll also hear research on the Carbon-to-Nitrogen ratio’s influence on the long-term fate of carbon in farm soils. Join the speakers for a live, moderated Q&A following the presentation!
