Summary

The project website gathers a series of short videos (few minutes) on the characteristics and implementation of some innovative techniques available to organic farmers with the attempt to cope minimum or no tillage with organic farming. In this attempt weed management is one of the main challenges and the videos highlight how it can be done in practice: on which crops, with which machines, in which soil and weather conditions. It also shows the details of innovative machines (i.e. CombCut) and their potentials. The short videos intend to give a practical overview of the techniques and results but in depth descriptions and implementations are available in the project reports and publications (all on the website).
In a short time the videos give a good overview of techniques. It can be used to have an idea of research done by the project and give indication on which reports and publications are available for further reading
