Innovative Cover Crop Farm Tour in Ohio

The Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA) presents a cover crop farm tour! Learn from one of Ohio’s foremost experts, David Brandt. He is a no-till farmer using cover crops extensively. David currently farms 1,250 acres of corn, soy, and wheat, and five acres of produce in Fairfield County, Ohio. He is funded by Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) to conduct research into nitrogen fixing cover crops, and also has a Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) grant to study how cover crop species transport nutrients to the soil’s surface.

This Twilight tour will cover techniques for successful cover cropping on your farm. The tour is part of the 2013 Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series from Ohio State University’s Sustainable Agriculture Team.
