Organic Farming: Tillage, Chemical Abstinence and Soil Resource Protection

Recent Research Findings and Practical Implications

November 20, 2023, 10:00 am

Conservation agriculture aims to eliminate physical soil disturbance – tillage – while allowing judicious use of fertilizers and pesticides as needed. Organic farming as codified by the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) aims to minimize chemical disturbance to soil life by excluding synthetics. NOP allows judicious tillage and cultivation practices, provided that soil condition is maintained or improved. This webinar will cover recent research and current best farming practices related to minimizing soil disturbance, and aims to deepen understanding of how both systems can enhance soil health and climate resilience, what unique benefits and challenges the organic approach entails, and how NRCS field personnel can help organic producers meet their soil, resource, and climate stewardship goals.
