Reducing tillage and adding organic matter back into the soil helps create positive, symbiotic relationships with the life beneath the ground. This benefits the fruits and vegetables planted in the soil, leading to nutrient-dense food.
This field day in no-till farming focuses on field preparation, planting, weed control, overwintering, and troubleshooting a no-till operation. Guest speaker, Dan Oostenbrink, has several years of experience in reduced tillage and walks us through their farming operation. This field day is part of our Climate Solutions Program, supporting farmers and ranchers in climate change mitigation strategies.
