Practical Tools for a Climate-Resilient Farm: Cover Crops, Biochar, and On-Farm Water Management
September 22, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Barr Farms has raised livestock and Certified Organic mixed vegetables on a fragipan (shallow soil) in the Ohio River Valley for 13 years. In response to increasing climate challenges – heavy rain events, high humidity all year, wetter than normal summers, and the possibility of droughts in the fall – Adam and Rae have implemented several mitigating systems.
Learn about their use of rye grass and cover crops, biochar, drainage and other adaptations to increase farm resiliency. Join in a discussion of the pros and cons of various strategies for farming successfully in a changing climate. Q&A with Adam and Rae will follow the live presentation.
