21 Mar 2019

This clinic brings cover crops into the 21st-century combining the new science, machinery and management practices to make them work on today’s farms.

Cover crops are being rediscovered as important tools for improving soil structure and health, controlling soilborne disease and weeds, reducing erosion and nutrient loss, and adding nitrogen. 

The Cover crop coaching clinic will help growers select and manage cover crops to deliver the most benefits in their production system. 
The practical workshop will help growers work through the following questions 

  • What do you want your cover crop to deliver?
  • What window (timing, water) do you have?
  • How are you going to get back to your cash crop?
  • What equipment do you have for soil prep, sowing and termination and incorporation?
  • What’s your level of commitment?

The coaching clinic is run by Kelvin Montagu and Darren Long. Kelvin currently leads the vegetable industries cover crop research project has been promoting the use of cover crops through www.SoilWealth.com for several years.  Darren Long from MG Farm, Tasmania, is one of the leading cover crop innovators in vegetable production. Combined Kelvin and Darren bring a wealth of practical and research knowledge to the clinic to share with you and get cover crops powering on your farm.
