Ray Weil was a guest speaker at our 2017 National No-Tillage Conference in St. Louis. His presentation focused on how cover crops benefit soil nutrient levels not only in topsoils, but in lower depths as well.

Ray's research has covered how cover crops influence soil nutrient profiles at various depths and optimal planting dates for cover crops, their effects on moisture retention and how compaction influences deep root penetration.

Today’s No-Till Farmer podcast, brought to you by Topcon Agriculture, captures much of Ray’s work being conducted at the University of Maryland.

Ray is also a co-author of “The Nature and Properties of Soils” and has dedicated his career to understanding the principles of soil productivity. Let’s join Ray as he discusses some of his recent research.
