Vermont Pasture Network
Addressing Pasture Compaction
The Center's Pasture Program, in collaboration with the UVM Plant & Soil Science Department,and regional farm partners, is embarking on a multi-year project to reduce compaction in pastures through the use of subsoil plowing (a.k.a. keyline plowing) and deep-rooted forage radishes. Funding for the project has been provided through a USDA Conservation Innovations Grant.

We have established videos explaining keyline plowing and what the project is all about, plus plowing demos and more at the Pasture Program's YouTube channel.

Currently, interested farm locations and practices have been determined, and the farms have begun to apply practices.
Field days will be scheduled in the fall to illustrate early results.
