This workshop reviews methods for manufacturing the following on the farm: indigenous micro-organisms for biologically inoculating agricultural fields; different types of compost for use in no-till as well as for use during specific periods of crop growth, i.e., leaf growth, flowering, and fruiting; liquid fish extract; liquid calcium extracts; and various plant extracts. These preparations are inexpensive to make and of superior quality. There are 2 parts to this workshop.

Learn to reduce and eliminate weeds using no-till systems as well as mechanical controls (e.g. hoeing, mowing, hand weeding, flaming, and tractor cultivation). I will also cover using mulches, cover crops, stale seed beds and microbial inoculations to shift soil microbiology to favor crops and allow fewer weeds.
