Join the Cornell Reduced Tillage Team for this in-depth field study of strategies to improve soil health in organic vegetables. Our field tour will highlight current research on integrating cover crops and reducing tillage for farms at multiple scales. We will demonstrate strip tillage for small-scale farmers and review impacts of new mulching and cover cropping techniques on weeds and crops. We will also have a field demonstration of measuring soil health impacts after different practices. Learn more about how these practices may impact pest or disease challenges, such as Swede Midge.
