Learn more about mechanized mid-scale no till garlic systems with Living-Lab cooperator Ken Laing
Read Ken’s interim summary of his 2020 and 2021 trials comparing different cover crops and mulching systems to reduce tillage and maintain continuous cover for transplanted and direct seeded organic vegetable crops.
Join us to check out Ken’s trials, showcasing and researching different cover crop and deep mulch systems in vegetable production.
Encouraged by the success of hand planted no-till garlic into winter killed sorghum-sudangrass this past season, read about how Ken tried to mechanize the process using a no-till transplanter for their 2021 crop.
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.
