No-Tiller, Sulphur Springs, Ohio
Adding Wheat and Cover Crops for No-Till Success
There are many ways to go about building soil organic matter but they’re not all equal. Nathan Brause learned this the hard way after trying to build it with corn-on-corn fodder — which he now calls “poor man’s manure.” The Sulphur Springs, Ohio, no-tiller will reveal how he introduced winter wheat, diverse cover crops and planting green to feed soil biology and alleviate the workload bottlenecks he faced. His transition from “planting brown” to “planting green” with covers on every acre, and the yield effects with his diversified approach, will also be examined.
