Brian Magarin has a background rooted in farming, spanning over a decade. Brian’s journey has been shaped by hands-on experience and a commitment to sustainable farming methods after first starting in a conventional setting. Through years of trial and error, he has gained valuable insights into soil dynamics, irrigation techniques, and the impact of cover crops on crop and soil health. Brian manages 9,000 acres for Belltown Farms and grows corn, soybeans, wheat, and alfalfa. He also operates his own farm, growing organic corn, soybeans, and small grains.

In this episode, Brian and John discuss:

  • The importance of understanding soil dynamics
  • Experimenting with strip-till and no-till management
  • Challenging traditional chemical-centric practices
  • The processes and challenges of using roller crimpers
  • The benefits of cover crops in maintaining weeds and moisture
  • The impact of cooler temperatures on crop growth and productivity
