Innovative No-Till: Using Multi-Species Cover Crops to Improve Soil Health
This webinar addresses multi-species cover crops that can be used to improve soil health, increase biological diversity, and benefit the bottom line in no-till grain operations. An increasing number of grain farmers are experimenting with these “cocktails” of cover crops such as legumes, grasses, and companion crops to keep the soil covered year-round.
During this webinar, Jay Fuhrer, District Conservationist with the National Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) in Bismarck, North Dakota, shared his experience with this innovative no-till approach. Fuhrer presented four on-farm case studies to illustrate how to successfully use cover crop “cocktails” to enhance crop production and livestock forage in a no-till grain operation. Susan Tallman, NCAT agronomist and Certified Crop Advisor (CCA), also joined the webinar.
