Vail Dixon: So You Want to be Organic AND No-Till? USB/CD
Are you interested in, or currently growing organic and want to avoid tillage? Many organic growers utilize tillage as their main tool to manage weeds, but this can destroy soil tilth, structure and beneficial microbes, which can cause or exacerbate other growing challenges like poor performance, pests, weeds and diseases. Learn strategies and tips for how to transition into organic without tillage, or how to improve your results if you have already made the commitment. Learn how proactive prevention can be much easier and effective than reactive management of “problems”. Build confidence to unravel the sequence of what choices will bring you the most bang for your buck and the quickest results.
