North American Ag. Round Table
Aug 01 - Dec 31, 2020
Zoom Webinar

Join the North American Ag. Round Table Webinar where you will hear a discussion on Cover Crops - - Reducing Tillage & Regenerative Agriculture.

Cover crops can play a major role in regenerative agriculture through soil improvements, reduced water & wind erosion and greater water retention. The microbiome thrives when cover crops extend living roots in the soil throughout the year. Like any crop, cover crops need to be managed and equipment needs adjustment to optimize its benefits. Too many farmers only get partial benefits by terminating these ground covers with the onset of winter. Join us for a great discussion with experts.

Rotation Impacts on Soil Health and Biology
Aug 01 - Dec 31, 2020
Online

Cameron Ogilvie from Soils @ Guelph will moderate the discussion of "rotation impacts on soil health and biology" with Laura VanEerd, Kari Dunfield and Dan Petker. Ontario is home to two long term rotational studies, lots of data have been produced to help quantify what difference occurs in the soil when we change tillage and crop rotations. This discussion will involve the results Laura has found with soil organic carbon level differences between rotations and tillage. As well Kari will share the discoveries on microbial diversity across rotations and tillage types. The overall discussion will help the audience understand the difference tillage and rotation plays in soil health as Dan will give a farmers perspective of what soil health means for his fields and resulting crops.

In this issue of GrainTalk webinar, Anne Verhallen discusses clover as a cover crop. What the differences are between clovers and when to use which clover. Also evaluation of the clover stand and the distribution of established plants. Discussion will also encompass what options growers have in patching up or replacing a not so good stand of clover in order to build soil aggregate stability by including a cover crop after wheat. Anne will also review the use of the Cover Crop tool, available online at the Midwest Cover Crop Council website which Ontario is a part of.
