Beat Glyphosate-Resistant Weeds by Planting Green

In the fight against increasing herbicide resistance, the practice of planting green into a living cover crop offers weed suppression and potential money savings.

No-Till Passport

English Organic Farmer Reduces Tillage, Adopts Cover Crops

This year all of my spring sown crops were established after a green manure, grazed by sheep over the winter and then with three light and shallow passes with a cultivator we managed to get our crops in with much less soil disturbance than usual. You’d be proud of me. The No-Till Passport series is brought to you by Martin Industries.
