PFI Field Day: No-Till Organic Relay Cropping at A&W Farms

Join Practical Farmer's of Iowa and hosts Caleb Akin and Noah Wendt as they showcase their innovative practices with organic no-till and relay cropping systems.  Caleb and Noah started A&W Farms near Cambridge, Iowa, in 2006. As a farm team, they feed cattle, produce conventional corn and soybeans and grow a variety of organic grain on 1,500 acres. Caleb and Noah have planted cover crops since 2015 on all of their acres. At this field day, they will discuss how they relay-crop rye and soybeans in their organic no-till system. Attendees will see the organic cultivation equipment Caleb and Noah use, and the custom-built roller-crimper and planter that Caleb uses to crimp rye and plant soybeans.
