Decreasing tillage and maximizing plant residue are important practices to improve the health of soil and reduce erosion. In many organic farming systems these practices can be challenging to implement due to the use of tillage for weed control. However, there are several opportunities to better manage tillage and plant residues. Join this webinar for a discussion of these challenges and opportunities in the context of organic farms in eastern states. This three-part series will feature different regions.

In the Understanding Organic Agriculture series, this webinar is presented by USDA NRCS Science and Technology. Contact Ben Bowell, Organic Specialist, for more information about this webinar.
