Summary

The German organic farmer Friedrich Wenz is one of the pioneers of reduced tillage. He has developed the so-called WEco-Dyn system.
In this video, he explains how the WEco-Dyn system works and underlines the role of soil fertility as a prerequisite for successful reduced tillage systems.
Farmers participating at this field day state possibilities and limitations of reduced tillage on their own farms.
