No-Till Management for Vegetable Producers

Monday, March 16, 2020

The NH Association of Conservation Districts in partnership with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and UNH Cooperative Extension, among other partners, are excited to host a free, soil health workshop for vegetable producers in Milford, New Hampshire this March.

No-till & cover crop expert Steve Groff of Cover Crop Solutions will share his knowledge about soil health management practices for vegetable production during a day-long training on Monday, March 16, 2020 from 9am-4pm.

The training will begin in the basement meeting room of the Chappell Professional Center at 468 Route 13 South in Milford, NH and move to Brookdale Fruit Farm in Hollis for the afternoon portion of the training.

Topics to be covered include: overcoming the challenges of transitioning to a no-till system, the management of cover crop systems and practical insights that make cover crops work, weed management, and planning for the soil health success of your vegetable production.  in the afternoon, the group will move to Brookdale Fruit Farm in Hollis, NH to explore and discuss the District's no-till vegetable transplanters.  Conversation around equipment will include how to make the transplanters work for you, equipment setup and operation tips.
