Charles Darwin once said that, “Without the work of this humble creature, who knows nothing of the benefits he confers upon mankind, agriculture, as we know it, would be very difficult, if not wholly impossible.”

Earthworms, also known as nature’s plow, play a crucial role in no-till systems. In today’s presentation from the 2016 National No-Tillage Conference, retired USDA-ARS soil researcher Doral Kemper will talk about how earthworms benefit no-till farmers when it comes to water management, and how tile drainage can be used to protect earthworms.

In today’s No-Till Farmer podcast, brought to you by Montag Mfg., we welcome Doral Kemper to share how no-tillers can increase their soil’s water table — and yield — with earthworms.
