No-Till Farmer broadcasts live from Vincennes, Ind., as No-Till Living Legend Ray McCormick is in the field planting. The 2024 Conservation Ag Operator Fellow talks through his planting decisions in real-time and explains his no-till planter setup, which he describes as “completely different” due to his staunch opposition to soil disturbance of any kind. Take advantage of McCormick’s 30+ years of no-till knowledge, and come with your toughest questions about planter setup and planting green!
