Throughout the duration of the Cover5 project there has been a lot of talk about ‘soil biology’. While many of our previous videos have shown obvious visual changes in soils over time through regenerative management practices, what other ways are there to measure and track the biological improvement of our soils? In this next series…
Two years ago, farmer John Brabham signed up for our ‘Cover 5’ series, a project where we take five acres of under-performing land and start introducing cover crops. When we met John, his five acres were largely defined by sandy soils, weeds and erosion. Through the use of diverse covers, in a short time, the…
The questions for farmers around the country is getting louder than ever: Conventional or Regenerative? Hear Will Metts of Metts Organix take on why he chose regenerative for the health of the land, himself and his family.
Using cover crops has a bevy of benefits. Among other things, covers help increase infiltration, reduce erosion, improve soil resilience and structure and promote organic matter. But what do first time cover croppers need to know to reap the most benefits early on? Hear Will Metts of Metts Organix’s take from his own experience.
