Mechanized No-Till Organic Vegetable Experimental Collaborative / Year 2 Report

Two years of Conservation Innovation Grant (CIG)-supported field experimentation in commercial-scale, no-till organic vegetable production have been completed on three California working farms. Phil Foster Ranches, Full Belly Farm, and Park Farming Organics will report on continued innovations in reducing/eliminating tillage in field-scale organic vegetable crops. Features include cover-crop biomass digestion under plastic and weed barrier fabric, seasonal grazing trials, novel equipment, and investigation of fungal-to-bacterial ratios. We'll also share learning on the Carbon-to-Nitrogen ratio's influence on the long-term fate of carbon in farm soils.
