No-till Vegetable Farming: Large Scale, Mechanized Systems

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

No-till? No problem! Well, not always. Join three no-till growers who are passionate about experimentation and innovation in a riveting brainstorm that’s sure to get your creative juices flowing! Each panelist will share about their farm, their no-till strategies, and some of their no-till successes and wins. Then each panelist will share a sticky problem or challenge they're encountering in regard to no-till, and as a group, the panelists and moderator will work to brainstorm potential solutions to each farmer's challenge. Come learn about no-till strategies and even better, learn about the problem-solving process required to implement no-till in your specific context. This session will focus on no-till strategies for medium to large scale vegetable production, with an emphasis on mechanized solutions. Moderated by the one and only Farmer Jesse from the No-Till Market Garden Podcast!

Before the session, we suggest you learn more about Ken Laing's Living-Lab Ontario No-Till Trials through this video!
