The web platform offers a compilation of various formats and materials dealing with reduced tillage and its challenges regarding weeds.
A selection of short movies about mechanical weeding, green manure and tailor-made machinery is listed. Leaflets and publications on reduced tillage can be downloaded. In there, different treatments and machinery are tested and compared to advice farmers on how to conserve soil while keeping weed under control.
For Swiss farmers information on the legal framework of direct payment and rules for reduced tillage is available.
Furthermore, the platform gives inputs about direct seeding, shallow ploughing and other related issues.
Swiss pilot farms involved in trials are briefly portrayed. The outcomes and conclusions from the on-farm studies are summed up in the platform and serve as inspiration to enhance reduced tillage.
