Video: A grower’s perspective of cover crops in vegetable production
For many years, Queensland vegetable grower Rob Hinrichsen from Kalfresh has taken advantage of the benefits that cover crops can provide to vegetable production systems.
In this Soil Wealth ICP video, Rob shares his experiences in using cover crops such as tillage raddish and sun hemp to achieve different objectives on-farm.
He also discusses some of the benefits of using cover crops, such as increased soil carbon and crop resilience, and provides some advice to those starting out.
