Benefits of Intercropping in Organic Systems

Intercropping — growing two or more crops in proximity — enables farmers to reduce tillage, expand opportunities to incorporate cover crops in rotations, and can be an integral part of pest management strategies. This webinar explores the deep benefits of intercropping, such as improved yields of cash crops, as well as associated challenges of implementation and management in organic production.

This webinar was presented in partnership with the USDA NRCS Science and Technology.
