“I learned a lesson from the biggest failure I ever had. Always balance your cover crops with grasses and legumes. Always. You don’t have to have a whole lot of grass, but you need enough there to have that carbon to make it work for you.”
— Dave Brandt, No-Till Legend, Carroll, Ohio
No-Till Legend Dave Brandt of Carroll, Ohio, showed the farming community the tremendous value of cover crops and regenerative practices in improving soil health. Brandt passed away unexpectedly in late May of 2023, leaving behind a legacy of challenging status quo farming methods and providing mentorship to countless farmers.
