This week’s featured video was produced by the Soil Health Institute (SHI) to promote the use of conservation tillage and cover crops in modern cotton production. This week’s featured video is the introduction to a series of short videos that were introduced in August. The six videos in the Cotton & Covers series, created by SHI, share the stories of three farmers who have successfully made the jump to no-till cotton & cover crop farming. SHI has also developed a Soil Health Training website which features seven, 1-hour training videos that provide more details on the science of improving soil health by utilizing cover crops and conservation tillage in cotton production.
The Soil Health Institute (SHI), the non-profit charged with safeguarding and enhancing the vitality and productivity of soils, released Cotton & Covers, a Healthy Soils for Sustainable Cotton video series, on August 20, 2020. The series follows three Southeastern cotton producers as they discuss their individual journeys to build profitable soil health management systems on their farms. Each producer is a mentor to other farmers in SHI’s soil health training program, working with other farmers to expand their knowledge of soil health systems and to overcome barriers to adoption.
