Video: Biostrip Research Across Ontario By growing specific cover crops in strips, so-called "biostrips" may help create a good seedbed before planting next year's crop. But how do they compare with strip tillage, no-tillage? This experiment led by Drs Laura Van Eerd and Joshua Nasielski will explore the effect of cover crop and tillage management on corn nitrogen capture and yield. Featuring University of Guelph graduate student Farzana Yasmin.
The experiment is established at three sites in Winchester, New Liskeard, and Ridgetown and is funded in part by the Grain Farmers of Ontario and the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), through the Ontario Agri-Food Innovation Alliance. The Ontario Crops Research Centres in Winchester, New Liskeard, and Ridgetown are owned by the Government of Ontario through its agency, the Agricultural Research Institute of Ontario, and managed by the University of Guelph through the Ontario Agri-Food Innovation Alliance.
