2023 National Strip-Tillage Conference Delivers Moneymaking Insights

Diverse group of speakers covers a range of topics to help hundreds of new attendees understand strip-till

The 10th annual National Strip-Tillage Conference captured a growing interest in strip-till as over 400 attendees, including 197 first timers, traveled to Bloomington, Ill., for the 3-day event in August. The conference featured 7 general sessions, 11 classroom presentations and 13 roundtable discussions, covering strip-till 101, nutrient management, precision technology, cover crops, soil testing, water management, grazing, compaction, equipment set-ups, weed control and more.

The action kicked off with a special pre-conference workshop at the Precision Planting PTI Farm in Pontiac, Ill. Over 100 growers participated in 3 interactive sessions — a guided tour of the 400-acre farm’s research plots, a strip-till equipment showcase, and a classroom on soil testing and nutrient management strategies.  

“What we’re trying to do on this farm is challenge the status quo,” says PTI Farm manager Jason Webster. “We’re taking everything that farmers are used to doing and comparing it to something else. We’ve tested all the major tillage systems over the last 5 years, and strip-till has been our overall winner as the most profitable system on this farm.”
