Reduced tillage systems for vegetable production – Dr. Ajay Nair


Strip-tillage production system with rolled and crimped cereal rye has been shown to promote soil health, resulting in significant increases in soil aggregate stability, potentially mineralizable nitrogen, active soil carbon, and microbial activity when compared to a conventionally tilled production system. To make strip-tillage and no-tillage systems viable options for growers, it is crucial to identify yield-limiting factors and develop strategies to mitigate them. This workshop will focus on effective cover crop management, crop selection, and soil fertility management techniques to produce high quality vegetable crops.
