In partnership with Iowa State University
Watch Levi roll-crimp a cereal rye cover crop with two goals in mind: 1). terminating the cover crop without herbicide or tillage and 2). laying down the cover crop as a mulch for weed control. Levi is a partner on a project headed by Kathleen Delate of Iowa State University investigating reduced tillage in organic crop production systems. After a few weeks, we’ll take another look at the field with Levi and he’ll also demonstrate an electric Weed Zapper on July 2.
