Wayne Fredericks, a strip-tiller from Osage, Iowa, has reduced his use of fertilizers by 30% on his 750-acre farm, thanks to strip-till and cover crops.
Since the 1980s, Fredericks has collected soil data to measure soil health, and found that his soil organic matter has increased by 2.5% in 25 years.
Fredericks will share how his cash crops have remained competitive while utilizing covers, how cover crops have helped reduce nitrates in the water on his farm, how he's built his farm up to 100% cover crop coverage, and more.
