By providing a much better understanding on why your no-till soils function like they do, just listening to Jill Clapperton and Dean Martens will make it worth your cost and time to attend the 11th annual National No-Tillage Conference being held Jan. 8 to 11, 2003, in Indianapolis, Ind.
During four fact-finding sessions, you’ll get the latest thinking on why soil microbiology, exploiting soil biological fertility, nutrient cycling and carbon sequestration are essential to your no-till success.
“Getting The Real Dirt On No-Tillage.”
While you walk through your no-tilled fields, Clapperton says you’re standing on the rooftop of another world that’s extremely critical to your no-till success. The Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada rhizosphere ecologist at the Lethbridge Research Centre in Lethbridge, Alberta, says millions of underground organisms are responsible for the decay of organic matter and cycling of macro- and micro-nutrients into forms that your no-till crops can more effectively utilize.
You’ll head home after this 2-hour, in-depth session with a complete understanding of how these microscopic organisms help stabilize soil aggregates while building a better soil habitat that will improve your no-till soil structure, tilth and productivity.
“Managing Your No-Till Soils To Exploit Soil Biological Fertility.”
Due to her enormous popularity and demand, we’ve tried for 3 years to book Jill Clapperton as a speaker for this event. She will explain why your no-tilled soils are more than just dirt. Building on session #1, she’ll describe how soil biological processes are responsible for most of…
