Organic farmers rely on cover crops to provide soil fertility, crop nutrition, weed suppression, and mitigation of other pest problems in a production system that excludes the use of synthetic fertilizers and crop protection chemicals. A large majority of organic producers use cover crops as a key component of their soil health management system. Today’s webinar will address the challenges organic farmers face in choosing and managing cover crop species and mixes, taking a step by step approach that considers cover cropping goals, seasonal niches in the rotation, climate and soil constraints, termination methods, and the needs of the following crop. Join us for this webinar during which we will discuss cover crops in organic agriculture covering approaches to build soil health and fertility and provide optimum production of cash crops.
