Specialty Crops Soil Health Podcast

‘No-Till Pumpkins’ is the first specialty crops topic in the HAT-Soil Health Podcast from Conservation Cropping Systems Initiative (CCSI) in partnership with Purdue University and Hoosier Ag Today (HAT). In this episode, Amanda and Jacob Baird, beginning pumpkin farmers in Tipton County, join University of Illinois Extension Educator Nathan Johanning and no-till pumpkin farmer Rod Johnson of Hobart, Indiana to learn the tips and tricks of successful u-pick no-till pumpkins – from cover crops to dealing with rodents.

Future monthly episodes on specialty crops will cover protecting pollinators and beneficials in cucurbits, managing cover crops on diverse vegetable farms, and other practices to improve soil health on fruit and vegetable farms. Listen in and learn from farmers, educators, and researchers.
