Brian Berns: No Till Alternatives

The Benefits of No-Till Farming

This video discusses the non-disruptive methods that Brian Berns and his brother Keith of Green Cover Seed and Providence Farms employ on their wheat, barley, triticale and soy fields. The Berns brothers employ no-tillage techniques and use cover crops on their fields as a way of enriching the soil, maintaining continuous coverage of the soil, and creating stronger root systems. They go on to talk about the other benefits of no-till farming, including increasing organic matter in the soil, improving water filtration, as well as fixing nitrogen in the soil.
