Intercropping: A Conventional Farmer’s Perspective
Our speaker, Colin Rosengren, owner-operator of Rosengren Farmers Inc. presented on:
- The impact of intercropping on his own farm (soil health, profitability, livestock integration, etc.)
- When he talks with farmers about this concept, what type of response does he get?
- What Colin thinks is the biggest barrier to farmers incorporating intercropping into their management practices?
- In Colin’s view, what the value chain (e.g., grain buyers, industry, etc. – like the people on this call) can do to properly support and accommodate intercroppers
