Tillage Radish Honored As Top No-Till Product Of 2012

From no-till attachments to spraying equipment to crop protection, no-tillers voted for the best-performing products, across 13 categories, for their farm operations.

A product that serves as a foundation for innovative no-tillers looking to reduce compaction and enhance soil tilth has taken the top prize as No-Till Product Of The Year for 2012.

The product was also the top vote-getter in the inaugural category of cover-crop seed in No-Till Farmer’s annual program.

The winners were announced and recognized in January during the 21st annual National No-Tillage Conference in Indianapolis, Ind.

Below is a summary of the 2012 winners, along with the “honorable mention” products in each category that received strong support in the voting.
