Dual rows and pre-formed beds

Living in the picturesque Pioneer Valley, surrounded by mountains and bathed in sunshine for most of the year, Melissa and Andrew Deguara are living a lifestyle envied by many. Farming the land Andrew grew up on together since 2009, the couple who’ve adopted improved practices like wider rows on controlled beds and set depth, credit the innovative Project Catalyst grower’s trial outcomes for inspiration. The Deguaras combine proven practices with their early adoption of GPS and soybean fallow crops, to increase the life of their cane stools.
