Reduced Vegetable Tillage Case Studies

The Reduced Tillage Vegetables Project aims to increase the profitable use of reduced tillage systems for vegetables grown in the cooler climates of the upper Northeast of the United States.

The project team, in cooperation with the Cornell Soil Health Team, focuses on overcoming some of the challenges inherent in adopting reduced tillage systems, and demonstrates that these systems improve soil quality, maintain yields, and reduce costs.
