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.
Ken Laing of Orchard Hill Farm is working in cooperation with EFAO to trial a wide variety of no-till methods for organic vegetable production. We will be documenting the work in a series of blogs.
Farmer-researchers Paul DeJong, Ken Laing and Tony McQuail published their findings in the Canadian Journal of Soil Science.
EFAO member-farmers Val Steinmann and Brent Preston, along with EFAO’s Research Director, Sarah Hargreaves, joined host Cameron Ogilvie on the new podcast “Talk Dirty to Me”.
