This workshop will explore the challenges of managing for soil health on organic farms. Producers who are building soil organic matter through innovative rotations and cover crops will detail their strategies. We’ll confront the stereotype that organic farmers till too much, and we’ll consider ways to balance weed management and erosion prevention, as the National Organic Program requires. Resources for financial and technical assistance will be shared. Join us to celebrate soil and cultivate techniques for success.
This workshop is approved for 1.5 Soil & Water Management CEUs for Certified Crop Advisors.
Presented in English with interpretation into Spanish.
