No Till and Cover Crops - A Systems Approach

No Till and Cover Crops - A Systems Approach

UVM Extension Champlain Valley Crop, Soil & Pasture Tam

Some people think no till is all about the planter; other people think that you plant a cover crop in the fall and then no till an annual in the spring. In reality, no till and cover cropping changes our entire cropping system. The Champlain Valley Crop, Soils, and Pasture Team, along with Jeff Sanders of the Northwest Crops and Soils Team, will lead a hands on discussion of practical tips, advice, and steps farmers can make to be successful when moving to a reduced or no till system on their farm. We will have a no till planter on display, and we will share research and observations of what does and doesn’t work with no till and cover crop systems in Vermont.
