In organic farming, the plough is generally used in maize cultivation because it provides a simple way to control weed.
Unfortunately, regarding soil erosion, compaction and runoff, ploughing is especially harmful in maize cultivation.
Direct sowing of maize could largely solve these problems.
The video presents the technique of direct sowing of maize, for example in a field of rolled field pea.
In the last years, FiBL tests have shown that under optimal conditions, the direct sowing of maize in organic farming is possible without significant yield losses.
