Conservation Tillage Conference in St. Cloud
Soil health is an important topic for many and is one that has several different factors which influence it. To keep farmers up on the latest research-based information the University of Minnesota is offering a Conservation Tillage Conference on Feb. 18 and 19, 2014 at the St. Cloud, Minn Holiday Inn and Suites. The conference runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, and 8 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. on Wednesday.
The conference emphasizes proven farmer experience and applied science.
Learn how heavier, colder soils aren’t necessarily the challenge they’re made out to be. Also, learn from the experiences of long-time no-tillers and reduced-tillage farmers at the conference.
Topic highlights at the conference include: weed species shift and control, nutrient management in high-residue systems, soil health improvements with reduced tillage, climate trends and soil resiliency, and what new equipment, products and technology are available.
