Residue and Tillage Management in Organic Farming Systems: Eastern States

August 2, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This webinar is presented in partnership with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS)- Science and Technology National Technology Support Centers.

Join this webinar to learn about challenges and opportunities in implementing tillage and residue management practices on organic farms. Decreasing tillage and maximizing plant residue are important practices to improve the health of soil and reduce erosion. In many organic farming systems these practices can be challenging to implement due to the use of tillage for weed control. However, there are several opportunities to better manage tillage and plant residues. Join this webinar for a discussion of these challenges and opportunities in the context of organic farms in eastern states. This three-part series will feature different regions.

* Note: Residue and tillage management practices in organic systems were ranked as a high training priority in the annual NRCS organic assistance survey.

Speaker: Lindsay Haines, National Organic and Pest Management Specialist, USDA NRCS, Washington, D.C.
