Join Living Lab-Ontario farmer-innovator Ken Laing and Living Lab-PEI researcher Ryan Barrett for a discussion about growing potatoes with cover crops. For Ken, his trials involve planting organic potatoes into a standing cover crop of rye/hairy vetch, mowing the cover crop and letting the potatoes grow without any tillage for weeds or hilling. For Ryan, his trials involve testing various fall-planted cover crops ahead of conventional potato production. Learn about the details of these systems, including their successes, challenges and next steps through short presentations about the trials followed by a panel discussion and Q&A.
