Learn More About “ECO” Farming from Ohio State

Soybeans planted in corn stubbleEarlier this summer I wrote a story for Ohio State University Extension about a new concept in conservation-oriented tillage practices. Known as “ECO” farming, the system involves what Extension Educator Jim Hoorman explained as “Eternal no-till, Continuous living cover, and Other best management practices.”

More than a clever acronym, the system is a novel innovation in conservation-minded farming pioneered by Ohio State experts in cooperation with the Natural Resources Conservation Service and the Ohio No-Till Council.

My colleague John Rice hosted this great video segment on the story. Enjoy!
