“It's all in the management, whether it’s raining 6 inches or 60 inches. I have to watch every drop, so I have to watch my population on cover crops as well as cash crops. I also have to manage that heat factor that we get in the summertime and water use efficiency in plants. Water is essential for us. We try to catch every raindrop where it falls and utilize that to the maximum.”
— Jimmy Emmons, No-Tiller, Leedey, Okla.

Coming in at no. 3 is “Barry Fisher, Soil Health, and the Future of Carbon,” in which Fisher discusses the role of farmers in preventing nitrate runoff and the education efforts that need to happen to keep nitrogen in the soil and out of waterways.
No. 2 in our 2022 countdown is a fascinating look at “Adapting No-Till In the Palouse With Russ Zenner.” In this snippet of the full episode, Zenner talks about the specific equipment needed to no-till the region’s steep slopes.
Finally, the no. 1 most played episode of 2022, “Finding No-Till Success in the Face of Adversity,” features two no-tillers explaining why no-till works in their wildly different climates.
