As No-Till Farmer celebrates the start of its 50th year in 2022, its editors have announced a new initiative — the “Conservation Ag Operator Fellowship” — to broaden farmers’ understanding about how to realize economic and sustainability success through no-till and conservation ag.
In September 2021, No-Till Farmer commissioned a project to determine the most significant research and publications that assisted in the understanding and adoption of no-till agriculture. Randall Reeder, retired ag engineer from Ohio State Univ., and Don Reicosky, retired USDA soil scientist, collaborated on a detailed process to complete this large and aggressive project in advance of three important no-till milestones in 2022.
