Workshop Session: Saturday III

No-till, which has been growing in popularity for row crops, is gaining traction now on vegetable farms. Learn about the environmental and soil health benefits of this practice and how no-till can help you work around extreme weather conditions and “lean” your operation. This workshop covers basic no-till implementation and tools, tips and tricks for Midwest veggie farms, fun soil facts, and more.
