Steve Groff, owner of Cedar Meadow Farm in Lancaster County, PA, is well-known for his work in cover crop research and no-till production practices. He applies his knowledge both in-field for grain and vegetable crops, but also under cover in the multi-bay style Haygrove high tunnels he uses to grow heirloom tomatoes. Implementing a no-till cover crop system in the high tunnel helps maintain soil structure and microbial life while reducing pest pressure and possible nutrient loss. During this webinar, Steve will share about the system, including the timing of cover crop planting, seed mix used, and cover crop termination. In addition, the webinar will feature recommendations for farmers interested in using cover crops as a complement with season extension technology.
Learn about how cover crops and no-till technology can benefit soil health and tomato production in high tunnels.
