Improving High Tunnel Soils with Cover Crops
Audio Access requires purchase or a conference code provided. Please visit the conference recordings page for more details.
High tunnels are becoming an increasingly popular approach to extend the vegetable cropping season in cold climates. However, soil and nutrient management in organic high tunnels can be challenging. This workshop will explore the concept of ecological nutrient management in high tunnel environments, with special attention paid to cover crops. Research-based information will be provided on cover crop species selection, nutrient contribution, challenges and benefits, as well as management tips and tricks for those wishing to diversify their high tunnel rotations with cover crops. Participants will also learn about current research efforts in high tunnel soil improvement taking place at the University of Minnesota.
