For the no-till garlic demonstration that is part of EFAO’s No-Till Vegetable Trials, Ken Laing planted garlic on November 1, 2019 into a frost-killed cover crop of sorghum-sudangrass.
As part of EFAO’s No-Till Vegetable Trials, Ken Laing is looking at four treatments to compare different methods for rapid regeneration of soil health for vegetable production.
The no-till transplanter is an important tool in EFAO’s No-Till Vegetable Trials to show that no-till techniques can be successfully employed on a larger scale (>3 acre +) using machinery that is currently available.
