SPEAKERS

Dave Brandt 

Nationally recognized cover crop expert and Ohio farmer, Brandt farms 950 acres all no-till, in central Ohio. He began no-till farming in 1971 and has been using cover crops since 1978.

He has participated in yield plots for corn, soybeans, and wheat into various covers. This information has been used by seed growers as well as county agents and universities to encourage other farmers to adopt no-till practices in their farming operations.

Brandt will be speaking about what he is presently doing, which is working with OSU Randall Reeder and Dr. Islam on reducing input costs of fertilizers and herbicides using various cover crops which improve soil health.

 

Farmer Innovation Panel 

Will Fuldwider will moderate a conversation with local farmers as they share their innovative conservation practices.
