This workshop is part of the NOFA-VT summer workshop series. While taking a tour of Route 5 Farm, we will discuss cover crop strategies such as integrating cover crops into a specialty crop management system, cover cropping equipment, and nutrient management. The goal of this discussion is to provide helpful soil health management tools that link to RAPs requirements. Abha Gupta will guide the discussion, offering information on specific cover crops and equipment, while also encouraging farmers to share their experience and provide peer-to-peer learning.
