No-till systems have been talked about for many years in the Texas Panhandle and the semi-arid U.S., although adoptions is lagging — even as the viability of the Ogallala aquifer in the southern Plains is fading.
Craig Bednarz is hoping to change that, after taking the helm at the West Texas A&M Semi-Arid Agricultural Systems Institute this spring.
Craig will share the Institute’s renewed focus on conservation farming and how he hopes to see adoption of no-till and cover crops increase in the region.
He’ll also detail the importance of rotation in cotton systems and what’s currently happening in the development of drought-tolerant crops.
