Early-Season Organic Weed Control

Thursday, June 25 | 7:30 – 8:30 p.m.

In partnership with Iowa Organic Association

In this virtual field day, Matt will show video of various passes of tine harrows and rotary hoes he made through the field earlier in June, and then we’ll take a live look at the field. He’ll also go over why and when he uses particular pieces of equipment, as well as the adjustments he makes. Learn about a European tine harrow Matt says is uncommon in Iowa but is starting to gain more attention.
