Tarping in the Northeast: A Guide for Small Farms

March 16, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Join us for an overview of a newly created guide to tarping for the Northeast, presented by one of the guide’s authors.
This resource is the product of a Northeastern IPM Center-funded working group on tarping and soil solarization. Working group member and presenter Sonja Birthisel, along with her colleagues, sought to create a thorough and application-oriented guide that identifies best practices and fills key knowledge gaps. It covers many uses of tarps, including stale seedbed preparation, cover-crop termination, and application in perennial systems.
Birthisel will engage attendees in a lively, comprehensive discussion of tarping, and provide them with a copy of this new resource.
