Dale Gies grows potatoes, wheat, and seed crops for vegetables and cover crops under irrigation near Moses Lake, Washington. In this publication, Gies discusses his experiences using a biofumigant cover crop to add organic matter and improve soil quality while successfully suppressing soilborne diseases and nematodes in potatoes. This case study is part of the Farmer-to-Farmer Case Study project, which explores innovative approaches regional farmers are using that may increase their resilience in the face of a changing climate.
