Multi species with wheat
Steve, I just listed to this podcast. We have a growing number of cattle producers growing wheat for silage in our area which lets them cut it in early June and still plant a full season soybean or corn silage crop afterwards. With that said, is there a legume that would either reduce inputs, improve silage quality or both that you would recommend intercropping with the wheat? We are talking fall planted wheat in Northwest Ohio. Thanks
I cannot thank you enough on the amount of
insight, education and motivation for no-till farming. I love the sharing of ideas and real life experience from both the farmers and facilitators, your podcast has kept me on a focused direction for a no-till operation on my new farm in SW Oregon...keep up the great work!
Fantastic podcast. My only reason for 4 stars is that the audio ain’t great sometimes.
