40 Plus Years of Cover Crop Experience
August 18, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
David Brandt will share his extensive knowledge of how to integrate cover crops into a corn-soybean rotation. Do not miss the chance to learn from one of the most experienced farmers in the world! He began no-till farming in 1971 and has been using cover crops since 1978. David has participated in yield plots for corn, soybeans, and wheat into various covers. This information has been used by seed growers as well as county agents and universities to encourage other farmers to adopt no-till practices in their farming operations. He has also been planting various blends of cover crops to find out what benefits they provide to improve the soil. At present, David is working with Ohio State University’s Randall Reeder and Rafiq Islam on reducing input costs of fertilizers and herbicides using various cover crops, which improve soil health. He is also working with the regional Natural Resources Conservation Service soils lab in Greensboro, NC, on the benefits of cover crops to improve soil health.
