    Pros and Cons of Cover Cropping for No-till Vegetable Production

    8:45 am- 3:30 pmMadren Conference Center & Clemson Student Organic Farm

    No-till vegetable production offers a more sustainable approach to weed management than the frequent use of herbicides and tillage, and also promotes soil health. Because cover crop based no-till vegetable production involves a different approach to management, growers may be reluctant to transition from conventional tillage without seeing the system in action and knowing its costs and benefits compared with conventional tillage. In this workshop, there will be discussion on the pros and cons of cover cropping and no-till with recommendations based on current research and our experiences in the field over the past decade.

    Fee to attend is $15 for the general public
