Friday Session III
Learn from the successes and failures of a decade of research on weed management at the WIU Organic Research Farm. Get insights on how crop and cover crop selection, sequences and planting systems, equipment guidance systems, and nutrient management strategies impact weed pressure in organic no-till and strip-till, as well as more tillage-intensive cropping systems.
Joel Gruver is an associate professor of soil science and sustainable agriculture at Western Illinois University, and the director of the WIU Organic Research Program. He researches cover crop management, reducing tillage intensity, and precision technologies in organic grain production.
