In this episode of the “No-Till Farmer Influencers & Innovators” podcast, brought to you by Montag Manufacturing, No-Till Farmer editor Frank Lessiter talks with Garth Mulkey of GS3 Quality Seed, who grows about 15 different crops outside of Monmouth, Ore, mostly for the seed industry.

“No-till has been a great time saver. It’s been great for our soils. We’ve implemented cover crops the last 5-7 years on the ground where it fits. I’m very happy being a no-till farmer, and we’ve had some influence, my peer group and myself, on our neighbors. There’s not a big revolution in no-till in our area, but it’s certainly a tool that people are open to using these days.…” — Garth Mulkey

Listen in as Garth talks about no-till transplanting, developing the daikon radish seed known as NitroRadish, how no-till cut his planting window by about 70%, how he keeps slugs in check, the business challenges he faced when commodity prices dropped in 2012, and much more

P.S. There’s lots more great no-till stories and history in Frank Lessiter’s new book, From Maverick to Mainstream: A History of No-Till Farming. Check it out here. {}
