Soil Health Webinar @ Online
Aug 12 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Managing for Soil Health on an Organic Farm:
A Farmer’s Perspective

Featuring farmer Klaas Martens, Lakeview Organic Grain, Penn Yan, NY

August 12, 2014
2PM Eastern / 11AM Pacific
60 Minutes
Presented by the USDA NRCS National Soil Health and Sustainability Team, East National Technology Support Center

Our presenter, Klaas Martens, Penn Yan, NY, uses a diverse crop rotation to farm over 1,400 acres of organic corn, soybeans, small grains, a variety of peas, and cover crops. By adhering to one simple principle – every crop follows a suitable predecessor – Martens has improved soil health and function to cycle nutrients, increase water infiltration and availability, and eliminate both weed and disease pest problems. In this presentation, Martens will focus on the use of plants to change the soil and how soil biology can perform the services that are expected from tillage. He will also cover relay cropping, or starting one crop before the previous crop is harvested, and how this practice allows him to maintain a living root and cover on the soil all year. Can tillage be part of a soil health building system? Join the webinar to learn more.
