Using Tarps to Control Weeds & Reduce Tillage

Online event 

Wednesday, April 21, 2021
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

"Tarping" or covering the soil with plastic silage tarps is becoming more popular with smaller scale vegetable farms as a way to help reduce tillage and control weeds. During this webinar, you'll get an overview of tarping systems at two vegetable farms.

The farmers will share why they decided to try this production method, how they make it work for their farm operation, and the benefits as well as the drawbacks. These farms are also both participants in Pasa's Soil Health Benchmark Study, so they will also touch on key aspects of their soil health data and discuss how tarping may or may not be contributing to each farm's soil health journey.
