Virtual Field Day - Integrating livestock in organic cropping system: impacts on food safety and soil health

Add to Calendar Wed, 20 Jul 2022 14:00:00 -0700 Wed, 20 Jul 2022 14:00:00 -0700 Virtual Field Day - Integrating livestock in organic cropping system: impacts on food safety and soil health

Researchers from Maryland, Minnesota, and California present their findings on the impacts of cover-crop grazing on food safety and soil health for fresh spinach and cucumbers in organic systems. This webinar will provide attendees with an understanding of how grazing of cover crops in fresh vegetable production systems can be implemented in 3 different climates (humid coastal, humid continental, and semi-arid). This work has been completed through funds from a USDA -ARS grant* in collaboration with The Organic Center, University of California, University of Minnesota, University of Maryland Eastern Shore and USDA-ARS.
