weedcontrolOn our farm we create a Tillage Schedule to help us determine when beds need to be prepped in our fields. Our crop planning method works backwards from sales projections, telling us when we need specific crops harvestable, and therefore when they need to go in the ground.  With multiple worksheets including information like days to maturity and greenhouse weeks, we create a Field Planting Schedule that tells us when each crop is to be planted, and how many feet. Our beds are standardized to either 75- or 150-foot beds.
