Soil Health Challenges in the Delta: What Works and What Doesn’t
February 2 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
This showcase will feature Como, MS farmer Mr. Sledge Taylor as he talks about his journey to improve soil health in the Mississippi Delta. Mr. Taylor began experimenting with no-till cotton in the 1990s. He planted 90% of his cotton using no-till in 2020 and seeded cover crops on half of his 4,500-acre farm. After seeing increased soil organic matter and better water infiltration, Mr. Taylor says cover crops have “supercharged” the whole process. Joining the conversation will be Parker Frew, Delta F.A.R.M.’s soil health specialist. He will provide insights from ongoing soil health, cover crop and no-till demonstrations occurring throughout the Mississippi Delta.
