Larry Steckel

Weed resistance has been an ongoing battle for no-tillers across the U.S. for 40 years, and having an effective herbicide program is crucial for no-till success.

At the 2018 National No-Tillage Conference, slated for Jan. 9-12 in Louisville, Ky., University of Tennessee Extension weed specialist Larry Steckel and Sarah Gehant, agronomic service representative with Syngenta, will discuss key strategies and transformative technologies that will help no-tillers delay the spread of herbicide resistance and protect the yield potential of their crops.

Co-located with the 3rd annual Precision Farming Dealer Summit, the 2018 conference will be held Jan. 9-12 at the Galt House in Louisville, Ky. The 26th annual conference offers 13 general sessions, 24 no-till classrooms and 80 no-till roundtables. Additional discussion topics include the impact of no-till practices on plant nutrition and yield, slowing the growth of herbicide resistance and tips from growers on successfully interseeding cover crops into cash crops. The 2018 program is available online.

Sponsors making the learning and networking opportunities possible for no-tillers are Ag Leader Technology, The Andersons PureGrade, Case IH, Equipment Technologies (Apache Sprayers), Exapta Solutions, Fennig Equipment, KB Seed Solutions, Montag Mfg., Needham Ag Technologies, Nufarm, Syngenta, Titan International, Verdesian Life Sciences, and Yetter Farm Equipment.
