Reduced Tillage Farm Tour

August 7, 2013

Reduced Tillage Farm Tour

Grab dinner and a beverage at Empire Farm Days and then join us for a free tour of local farms to view reduced tillage crops and equipment and a comparison of production practices. The tour will start at Fred Jensen's Farm*. Whether you're already an established reduced tiller, thinking of trying it, or a relatively new adopter fine-tuning your reduced tilling, you'll learn a lot at this tour.

Reduced Tillage Tour plantings and equipment:
- Deep placement of ammonia preplant vs. liquid N applied at planting
- Strip tiller with N applicator configured from various components
- Strip till soybeans planted with and without auto guidance
- No till soybeans drilled vs. planted in 30 inch rows
- Crops in fields with effective tile vs. insufficient tile
- Auto steer on an articulated tractor, and auto guidance that failed
- Ammonia applied on a bias to corn planting

For more information about this event, contact Bill Verbeten of the NWNY Dairy, Livestock & Field Crops Team.

For more information on reduced till vegetables, contact Carol MacNeil.

Announcements

Crops Not Covered by Crop Insurance: Deadline 2/1

USDA recently announced the release of a reinvigorated Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP). This is a result of opportunities created by the Farm Bill of 2014, and a general interest in covering more crops under the increasingly important policy umbrella known as crop insurance. NY legislators have been pushing for more creativity to provide safety net programs for producers of horticultural crops that do not have other crop insurance alternatives.

For very early spring planted vegetables the deadline is February 1, with later planted crops having a later deadline. Read more on program and deadlines.  

Soil Health Grant for Veg Growers

The Cornell Vegetable Program just received a two year grant to work with vegetable, potato and dry bean growers in the Cornell Vegetable Program Region to increase or diversify their cover cropping, and/or to reduce tillage. For cooperating growers soil sampling, soil testing, and interpretation for the Cornell Soil Health Test (CSHT) will be free. Evaluation of biomass, weed growth, nitrogen produced, crop response, etc. can be done for new cover crop plantings being tried. Reduced/zone-tilled crops planted side by side with conventional crops can also be evaluated. Field days are part of this grant, as is assistance for grower discussion groups/grower-to-grower networking. More money than ever is available as an incentive for adoption of good soil health practices! Learn more!

New Video Helps to Promote the Work of the CVP

Many people in our community are not aware of the size or the impact of the Western New York vegetable industry on the state’s economy. We decided to do something about that! The Cornell Vegetable Program is proud to release a video that highlights vegetable production in our region – from fresh market to processing, from farms that are several thousand acres to just a few, from biodynamic growers to conventional – and provides an introduction to our team of Vegetable Specialists and how we assist growers in this area. We greatly appreciate that several WNY vegetable growers shared their thoughts on what the Cornell Vegetable Program means to them: Paul Fenton, Batavia; Mark Zittel, Eden; and Matt Mortellaro, Elba. The video was produced by videographer, James Monahan. Watch the video and leave us a comment!
