87 Symposium--Engineering Solutions and New Machines for Organic Agriculture

Oral Session
Sponsored by Organic Valley

ASA Section: Agronomic Production Systems
Weed and fertility management continues to be of the biggest constraints in organic agriculture. Cover crops are frequently cited as part of the solution, but also introduce new challenges. There is a need to develop new machinery that optimizes manure integration, weed control, and planter technology in cover crop-based till and no-till organic systems
