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.
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.
