Webinar: Selection and termination of cover crops for organic growers considering no-till or strip till
Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm (Q&A discussion over lunch)
Presenter: Dr Kelvin Montagu
Details: No-till/reduced till horticulture has proven to deliver significant benefit to vegetable growers profitability, productivity and to soil health. However, organic growers face additional
challenges with no-till methods such as choosing & terminating green manure crops. Maurie
Cafra (Cafresco organics) is about to trial no-till on a small area of his farm and we will be
monitoring the results this season.
Join plant pathologist Dr Len Tesoriero as he discusses leaf diseases of onions in Australia and their management.
Time: 3:30pm to 4:30pm AEDT

Integrated weed management (IWM) is vital for getting on top of weed problems in vegetable production. It involves combining all appropriate weed control options in a coordinated, supportive and flexible way. A key outcome of effective IWM in vegetable production is the reduction of the weed seed bank (the number of viable weed seeds present in the soil) to ensure that the weed burden is minimised.
This webinar will cover the key tactics and principles of IWM by giving examples of successful IWM.
