Nominate Your Precision Farming Specialist for National Recognition

No-tillers rely on precision farming specialists at all hours of the day and night to keep operations running, especially during the critical planting and harvesting times of the year. To help shine a light on these hard-working and oftentimes overlooked individuals, Farm Equipment, a sister publication of No-Till Farmer, is launching the first-ever Precision Specialist Week.

The 1st Annual Precision Specialist Week, celebrated Aug. 13-19, 2023, gives no-tillers, and farm equipment dealers and manufacturers, the opportunity to appreciate the hard work and dedication of the experts involved in making today’s precision farming systems operate efficiently.


Ahead of the celebration, no-tillers are invited to nominate a local precision farming specialist who goes above and beyond to keep operations running. Share stories about how this person provides you with critical support at

All submissions will be shared on and during Precision Specialist Week in August and further celebrated at the 2024 Precision Farming Dealer Summit in Indianapolis, Ind., in January ahead of the National No-Tillage Conference.
