Description

Two organic farmers will be sharing their experiences using cover crops, crop rotations, and how they are trying to reduce tillage with a roller crimper and flamer. Randy Anderson, USDA-ARS research agronomist at the North Central Agricultural Research Laboratory, will discuss the goal of his research program to develop a continuous no-till system for organic producers. He will present results on converting red clover fields to cropland without tillage and describe the impact of under seeding clovers in winter and spring wheat on downy brome growth.
