Videos: Planting no-till potatoes

Image result for planting no-till potatoesEver wondered if it is indeed possible to plant potatoes the no-till way, and if so, how it’s done? Here are two videos from farms in Pennsylvania in the US which shows how such an operation can indeed be done with specialized equipment and dedicated crew members. The first  is video footage of a potato planting operation at Red Hill Farms in Pitman, PA. These potatoes were planted with a subsoiler into beds established last fall and planted into a cereal rye cover crop. The second is a no-till potato planting shot at Faihopity Farms in Berwick, PA. The main concern here is to produce high quality potatoes that are both healthy for the people who eat them and regenerative to the land.
