This 45-minute video was produced as a tool to educate vegetable farmers about a range of reduced tillage practices that promote soil health. The practices were demonstrated and explained by experienced farmers and researchers on nine farms in five northeastern states. Topics covered included: introduction to sustainable tillage, using a soil spader, a no-till mulch system, chisel plowing plus field cultivation, conventional no-till, zone-till research, zone-till on the farm, ridge-till research, and ridge-till on the farm.
