Empress trees

Live Webinar: Empressive Farmer EP#3


Thurs, Feb 25th, 7 PM (EST)

There is growing evidence that planting cover crops in between trees and other row crops can provide many ecosystem and financial benefits. These include improving soil health, increasing moisture retention, reducing soil erosion, weed control, and helping to control pests. Some cover crops can even provide another source of revenue and an option for animal grazing.

All together, planting cover crops can be seen as an investment rather than a cost.

Join this webinar and hear from Dr. Ramdas Kanissery, leader of the Weed Science research and extension program at the Southwest Florida Research and Education Center, University of Florida. We will also be joined by members of the World Tree Farmer Success team on the best types of cover crops to try on Empress tree farms in the Southeast.
