In this episode of the “No-Till Farmer Influencers & Innovations” podcast, brought to you courtesy of Ingersoll & Agrisolutions, Frank Lessiter chats with long-time no-tiller Mike Wolpert.

Mike has been no-tilling for more than 20 years in West Virginia and in this session Mike relays some of his memorable no-till experiences, such as the underlying reason he (almost) always wears protective gear when working with chemicals, why he prefers aerial seeding his cover crops and what happened when some of the land he was farming went up for bid. Plus, Frank answers a listener email about the early days of no-till.

P.S. There’s lots more great no-till stories and history in Frank Lessiter’s new book, From Maverick to Mainstream: A History of No-Till Farming.







No-Till Farmer‘s No-Till Influencers & Innovators Podcast podcast is brought to you by Ingersoll Tillage.
