High Plains No-Till Conference set for Feb. 4-5 in Burlington PDF Print E-mail
Written by Holyoke Enterprise   

The 26th annual High Plains No-Till Conference will be held Tuesday-Wednesday, Feb. 4-5 at the Burlington Community Center.

Keynote speakers will be Gabe Brown, integrated farmer and rancher from North Dakota who has decreased expenses and increased profits grazing cover crops and applying holistic management practices, and Jill Clapperton, president of Rhizoterra, Inc. who works with farmers using soil health to increase nutrient density in no-till grown foods.

Over 50 breakout sessions will be offered during the two-day event. All sessions will carry certified crop advisors credits, and commercial applicators can expect five available credits.

The challenge of any growing organization is to find a balance between experience levels and philosophies of the members. At the High Plains No-Till Conference, sessions will cover a variety of topics by highly sought after speakers.

Sessions will cover the range from soil tests and spraying tips to integrated continuous crop no-till with cover crops and companion cropping. NRCS and ARS specialists will be explaining the science of soil interactions while industry partners get down to the application details in weed control and precision farming.
