This is the second season of Ken Laing’s No-Till Vegetable Trials, and the first year they’ve been run as part of Living Labs – Ontario. It is off to a busy start! Ken has been posting regular updates on EFAO’s Organic No-Till Vegetable Trials Facebook …
As a collaborator on the Living Lab – Ontario initiative, the Ecological Farmers Association of Ontario (EFAO) is one of 10 partners who will facilitate on-farm research trials focused on reduced tillage and continuous cover. EFAO will support two trials, one in organic field crop production and one in organic vegetable production.
It is well known that extending field crop rotations by adding small grains, such as wheat, barley, oats, triticale, spelt, or rye, has many ecological benefits. Here, we describe the economic benefits as well.
The budget funds every one of the programs recommended by Farmers for Climate Solutions, and offers tax rebates for farmers.
