Back in 2017, we recognized 43 North American farmer and educators as No-Till Legends. In addition, 11 international honorees from seven countries outside of North America were also recognized as No-Till Legends. Since that time, we’ve been asked numerous times why we haven’t added to the list of international farmers and educators who are well deserving of this recognition
As a result, we’re introducing a program to honor the accomplishments of additional international farmers and educators. To kick off the program, we’re honoring five global educators and growers who are featured in this article. Our goal is to honor three internationally known farmers and educators in the no-till and conservation agriculture (CA) movements to this honor roll each year.
Earlier this year, several international conservation ag colleagues assembled a comprehensive list of worldwide no-till pioneers and champions exclusively for No-Till Farmer. This list includes 52 individuals who have made significant contribution to developing, promoting and spreading the word about the many benefits of no-tillage and CA internationally.
This year’s five honorees were selected by a panel of judges from that list. To view this list, go to No-TillFarmer.com/international.
If you would like to nominate other well-deserving international farmers or educators for future No-Till Legend awards, please write a 1-2-page letter that outlines their accomplishments and email it to me at email@example.com before May 30, 2024.
