Everbedding as a serious means of Production

Title basically says it all. I'm moving to a bastardized version of Everbed, where when necessary I must get a bed flipped under 24 hours. I know there have been some small instances of Everbeds happening but what do y'all think of an almost full blown everbed production system? I see it as an almost perfect answer to may of the no-till problems, and yet I'm not seeing much more than a bit of interplanting happening. What do y'all think? Anyone else looking to do it? My production system will be/is a hybrid of DCM (Deep Compost Mulch), Cover Crops, and Everbed.

I think having a hybrid system that attempts to keep the soil covered and planted as much as possible is the greatest path to success and to developing one’s own no-till system for his/her region. More and more I think that no-till farming isn’t about systems but about a tool box. Gonna do a video on this for Sunday, in fact!

Love that, totally agree.
