Intercropping—growing one crop close to or between other crops—is a production tool that can provide multiple benefits to producers. Intercropping can reduce tillage, increase opportunities to include cover crops in a rotation and can help with pest management. This webinar will explore the opportunities and challenges associated with intercropping in organic production. The two presenters will discuss their research findings and experiences from work in the eastern and western US.
