Mechanized No-Till Organic Vegetable Experimental Collaborative / Year 2 Report

Date:
04/06/21, 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

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 this pre-recorded presentation!
