7/2 | Impact of Roller-Crimping Cereal Rye + Live Weed Zapper Demonstration

07/02/2020
2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

In partnership with Iowa State University

 

Levi will show us the field where he previously roller-crimped a cereal rye cover crop and planted soybeans. He will also demonstrate the Weed Zapper, which uses electricity to kill weed escapes that have grown taller than the soybean canopy. In lieu of traditional cultivation, both roller-crimping cover crops and zapping weeds are part of Levi’s strategy for reducing tillage in his organic row crop system.

 

Host: Levi Lyle, Levi’s Indigenous Fruit Enterprises
