2019 Conservation Tillage Conference

Tuesday, December 17 - Wednesday, December 18

strip tillage

This conference emphasizes proven farmer experience and applied science. Straight from the fields, learn how heavier, colder soils aren’t necessarily the challenge they’re made out to be. 

Conference highlights

  • Weed species shift and control.
  • Nutrient management in high-residue systems.
  • Reduced till and cover crop strategies straight from veteran farmer practitioners.
  • Proven cover crop strategies for your system to anchor nutrients, manage moisture extremes and provide free nitrogen.
  • Soil health improvements with reduced till systems and cover crops.
  • Vendor sessions: Learn about new equipment, products and technology. More than 20 vendors will be on-site throughout both days.

Attendees who stay for the entire conference will be offered 10 continuing education units (CEUs).  CEU categories are noted in parentheses for each session. Available categories include:

  • CM - Crop management
  • PA - Precision agriculture
  • PD - Professional development
  • PM - Pest management
  • SW - Soil and water
