The 2017 conference, themed Securing Our Future with Soil Health, features the industry’s premier soil health experts and producers including Dr. Ray Weil, Odette Menard, Dr. Allen Williams, Rick Bieber, Blake Vince, Rodney Rulon and many more.

Following the Winter Conference, stay for the Jan. 26 Agriculture’s Innovative Mind’s Symposium, with the focus Building Resistance, Resilience, and Recovery into Your Agriculture Operation. Farms and ranches experience continual changes in weather patterns, disease pressure, pest invasion and market fluctuations.
Managing for these changing conditions is a challenge for any producer. Speakers will share their knowledge, experiences and management techniques to build resistance, resiliency and recovery into a healthy production system.
For newcomers to no-till systems, a new session Jan. 23 is tailored to producers who are just getting started into no-till or have less than five years in the system. Attendees will hear insights from experienced producers on crop residues, rotations, optimizing equipment, integrating livestock with cover crops, and soil testing and fertility.
This workshop offers new no-tillers tools to be more confident in their decision-making. Check out the entire agenda.
Registration is open at no-till.org. Combination discounts and student rates with valid ID are available. Early bird rates end Nov. 30.
