Growing Potatoes with Cover Crops

Join Living Lab-Ontario farm cooperator, Ken Laing and Living Lab-Atlantic collaborator, Ryan Barrett from the PEI Potato Board for a discussion about growing potatoes with cover crops on Wednesday April 20, 12:30-1:30.

For Ken, his trials involve planting organic potatoes into a standing cover crop of rye/hairy vetch, mowing the cover crop and letting the potatoes grow without any tillage for weeds or hilling.

Ryan will discuss trials run with PEI potato growers that involve testing various fall-planted cover crops ahead of conventional potato production.

Learn about the details of these systems, including their successes, challenges and next steps through short presentations about the trials followed by a panel discussion and Q&A.
