Pasture Renovation - Delong West Pasture

Graphic showing the tillage practice comparisons

This project compares tillage practices — fall, spring and no-till (direct seeding) — and their impacts on yield, economic returns and field management practices when rotating out of perennial forages and into annual crops. The rotation aims to improve the financial and agronomic productivity at the Delong West Pasture at Olds College Smart Farm. The comparison will guide field based economic evaluation and best management practices for annual and perennial crop rotations.

This project is Academics/student led.
