Cover Crops, Plant Pathogens and Disease Control in Tomatoes

January 21, 2013: Linking Cover Crops, Plant Pathogens, and Disease Control in Organic Tomatoes, by Brian McSpadden Gardener of the Ohio State University. Cover crops have many described uses, but choosing the right one for your operation is not a simple matter. Management costs need to be compared to their utility; e.g. for disease control. The results of field experiments conducted in NY, OH, and MD evaluating different cover crops for tomato production will be discussed. Register at https://www.extension.org/pages/66826

Thanks again DDF. Another one I won't get to see, but wish I could. How about a synopsis, someone??? Although my "operation" is only a family plot, I am thinking about using cover crops as appropriate. Knowing which to use with what would be useful.

Thanks for the link DDF !

Though may be late for the next tom season- or maybe not 8)

I've tried buckwheat and winter rye for general organic mass "green manure" as a learning cover crop this year, and has been educational. So I'll have to check out the webinar. I may need to update my JAVA. I'm on a MAC, and Mac OS JAVA is kinda lame.
