Dr. Buz Kloot and Dr. Gabe Kenne discuss biomass data and trends in fields with long-term cover crop use vs no cover.
Cover crops don’t just cover the soil above ground. They literally have the ability to change the life below it! In this video, Dr. Buz Kloot and Dr. Gabe Kenne review soil biomass numbers from a few selected fields across the state of South Carolina. These fields have recently implemented no-till and covers and are…
In this video, Dr. Buz Kloot unpacks the second part of the Haney Test dealing with organic matter.
In this video, Dr. Buz Kloot unpacks the first part of the haney test dealing with CO2C and soil respiration.
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…
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.
‘Most problems you’re gonna incur with cover crops are spurred by your own actions.’ Hear how Will Metts of Metts Organix avoids them and works with the patterns of nature to grow healthy, sustainable crops!
‘Regenerative’ is a fairly new term in the agricultural space. In this video, Will Metts of Metts Organix unpacks what this approach to farming is all about and how producers and consumers alike can benefit from it.
Some of our farmers in South Carolina have voiced frustration over an increase in wildlife pressure after incorporating cover crops. We sat down with Will Metts of Metts Organix to hear first hand about this experience and what to expect.
‘[Outside of the plot] you can see quite a few weeds, but inside [with the cover crops] if we were to peel it back, you would see that we don’t have any weed pressure.’ Cover crops: Nature’s way of suppressing weeds and building healthy soils at the same time! Hear producer Rupert Burrow’s experience with…
