Field and Bed Preparation

 

Before you can plant, you need to prepare the soil. This webinar will discuss methods of field and bed preparation, the dangers of over cultivation, and innovative no-till options. Primary and secondary tillage equipment will be shown as well as smaller-scale and hand-tool options. Farmer Seb Ramirez will contrast the differences between tractor, BCS, and no-till techniques. A recording of this webinar will be available.
