This is a podcast episode on CAFF's podcast, "The Farmer's Beet." During this episode we travel to Super Tuber Farm near Grass Valley, CA. We learn from Jeremy about their farm focused on tuber crops and partnership they had with CAFF to complete an on-farm research trial during the 2019 growing season on a practice called occultation. Occultation is the use of tarps to minimize weeds in an organic system.
