Inoculant Impacts on Organic Vegetable Production in the Upper Great Plains

In the Northern Great Plains, adoption of roller-crimping for weed suppression in no-till organic cropping systems remains a challenge due to limited growing season and delayed soil warming, which limit production of sufficient cover crop biomass to suppress weeds. A solution may be to grow weed-suppressive biomass out of phase spatially and temporally with the main crop, an approach called ‘deep mulching.’
