A focused 4-day program covers myriad topics for profitable results in no-till farming, including equipment set-ups, cover crops, intercropping, economic analyses, soil testing/analysis, fertilizing methods and more.
Unique from other ag conferences is the mix of general sessions, classrooms and farmer-to farmer roundtables and face time with suppliers at the National No-Tillage Conference — all designed for maximum networking and the practical transfer of experience and knowledge. The lineup includes:
- General Sessions — covering an abundance of proven no-tilling ideas and strategies. Among the national experts this year are Howard G. Buffett, Clay Mitchell, Marion Calmer, and many more!
- Farmer-to-Farmer Roundtables — informal, moderated peer-to-peer discussions on specific no-till topics. Attendees should come with 5 questions to get answered in this proven format for sharing what works and doesn't.
- No-Till Classrooms — in-depth presentation-style sessions convey practical, actionable ideas from experienced no-tillers on the most pressing needs.
This year's pre-conference workshop is hosted by No-Till Innovator Mike Starkey at his farm shop just 30 minutes northwest of Indianapolis. He and Bob Barr, research scientist at Indiana Univ.-Purdue Univ. Indianapolis, share data from their latest water quality monitoring project and discuss its impact on Starkey’s Brownsburg, Ind., operation and a community of 2 million people. Don’t miss this exclusive chance to examine the 2023 No-Till Innovator Award recipient’s planter and talk shop about the conservation practices on his farm. A sit-down dinner follows the workshop. This special experience has limited attendance, so reserve your spots today! (Additional $149 to attend. Available to conference attendees only. Limited seating. Workshop is 4-6 p.m. Dinner is 6-7:30 p.m. and open to workshop registrants only.)
