"ECO Farming stands for Eternal no-till, Continuous living cover, and Other best management practices," said Jim Hoorman, assistant professor with OSU Extension. "In other words, absolutely trying to eliminate tillage as much as possible."
"Continuous Living Cover means that farmers try to keep a living crop on the soil 100 percent of the time," Archuleta said. Examples include grain crops followed by cover crops, pasture or hay systems, or perennial plants. "The goal is to protect the soil from soil erosion, increase water infiltration, and decrease nutrient runoff."
