Great job on the cover crop farmers!!
It’s been about two weeks since the last cover crop workshop and the sunn hemp is coming in strong!! It is easily out-competing most of the previous weeds and providing a ton of soil benefits. After last week’s round of compost tea the soil really began to loosen up and the mushrooms began to appear everywhere; and as we know from the workshop, that’s the signal to get planting. Soil aeration, mineral balance with disease and pest control all in one field!
A couple of quick, strip-till plots, daikon, soybean, sweet corn, sunflower and alfalfa and we are set for a late fall harvest. Great job Farmers!!
