No-till cover-cropping

At the Doudlah Organic Field Day last week, we had the opportunity to hear all about Dr. Erin Silva’s research in no-till cover-cropping. She leads the Organic and Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Needless to say, she brought up many good points. Catch the highlights in the video below (if you’re reading from your inbox, click on the picture and it’ll direct you to the video).

If no-till cover-cropping interests you, Erin will be hosting an organic field day from 9:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, September 2 at the Arlington Agricultural Research Station, N695 Hopkins Road, Arlington, Wisconsin 53911. Topics of discussion include long-term yield trends and soil quality in organic production, pasture productivity on organic dairy farms, organic pasture grass variety trials, and organic no-till production of row crops. RSVP’s are requested, but not required, by contacting Erin at 608-890-1503 or emsilva@wisc.edu.
