This session will feature two organic vegetable growers who are making no-till systems work – one on a hand-scale farm, the other using mechanization. Kristyn is producing one acre of organic specialty Korean vegetables, herbs and seed crops at Sunol Ag Park. Will is in the sixth year of developing a mechanized no-till system on five acres, where he utilizes cover crops, a roller crimper, solarization, and innovative modified equipment.
