How to grow safely on extremely compacted soils without damaging the soil? This is the question of Ede Kis's Education Day, and he will share his experiences on the subject, assisted by Krisztián Csizmás.
Ede on the way to the no-till strip-tillagewhich, on average, provides a solution for soils with an average of 68 percent tilth to ensure a relatively even yield with as little disturbance as possible.
We will cover the theoretical background of regenerative farming in the first part of the training day, and then move on to the practical after a short flame-washing session. Mechanical and other technical issues will be covered, as well as the actual practice of farming - not only strip-tillage, but also min-till and no-till.
Host and hostess: Ede Kis
Moderator: Krisztián Csizmás
Ede Kis in Gyomaendrőd in Peace County 259 hectares under arable crops. It currently produces winter cereals, sunflower, beech and oil radish.
In 2007, he started to switch to tillage based on loosening and shallow tillage.Since 2016, he has been experimenting with direct seeding and cover crops, and will be using strip-till technology on a commercial scale from autumn 2022.
He has been a member of the TMG Association since its foundation.
Its terrain is former rice fields: 60-70 kA deep permafrost soils.
Krisztián Csizmás comes from a farming family, his parents were involved in animal husbandry, he went into crop production.
Farms 140 hectares around Abony, the without filming in the last five years.
There are direct seeding experiments and min-till areas, as well as areas where the seedbed is reclosed with a straight knife loosener and heavy roller, for example in maize. He had direct seeded wheat after sunflowers. He hopes to get to no-till next year.
Participation fee: 20.000 HUF
Application deadline: 22 June 2023.
Participation is subject to registration and is valid upon payment of the participation fee.
In case of rain, we will hold the education day in the same place, so everyone should bring wellies and raincoats.
We prepare with flame gas, drinking water.
We recommend it primarily to those who are interested in strip cropping, who have experience in soil conservation technologies or who are just starting out. It is useful for those who farm on very compacted soils.
In all cases, we organise the training day outdoors. If we get a little rain, we'll get through it in wellies and raincoats.
We will be exposed, in the fields, where there is no shade. We ask you to bring a hat, an umbrella if you can't stand the hot sun.
There is only one reason for this: you did not enter your e-mail address correctly when registering. We've automated the registration process, so if you're in any doubt about anything, call the number provided during the day or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will prepare a flame, we will specify who wants what when you register. Also, we will provide drinking water in demijohns, so please bring a flask or cup or canteen. We would like to reduce the amount of pet bottles going into the trash. Thank you!
