carrot damageAn interesting development in the experiment beds… we are noticing a lot of damage from rust fly and wire worms in the tilled bed. Significantly more than the no-till bed. So it looks like our overall yields will be higher in the no-till bed. Its strange that tillage is often recommended as a pest control! Clearly in our case, tilling has disturbed a natural eco-system that would normally contain predators for these pests.
