No-till on the Plains has been listening to the needs of its conference followers and, in response, is now offering a new workshop.
The new event is designed for producers who are looking to make the switch to a no-till systems approach, and for those who have just recently started adopting the system. The Beginning No-till Workshop will take place Jan. 23, 2017, in Salina, Kan. at the Bicentennial Center.
The session will feature many of the best and most experienced no-till farmers from across the region, sharing their experiences, failures and successes for building a no-till system. Speakers include: Keith Thompson, Osage City, Kan.; Jimmy Emmons, Leedey, Okla.; Scott Ravenkamp, Hugo, Col.; Darrin Williams, Waverly, Kan., and Dr. Ray Ward from Ward Laboratories in Kearney, Neb.
Attendees will hear insights from experienced producers and professionals on crop residues, rotations, optimizing equipment, integrating livestock with cover crops and soil testing and fertility.
This workshop offers new no-tillers the tools to be more confident in their decision-making. Check out the entire agenda. Cost to attend is only $100, which includes lunch. Arrow Seed from Broken Bow, Neb., is the exclusive sponsor for the workshop.
Beginner’s Workshop attendees can also stay for the 2017 Winter Conference, themed Securing Our Future with Soil Health, featuring 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. Three panel discussions will address topics including resistant weeds, direct marketing and “Surviving Low Commodity Prices.”
