We're just a week away from the opening day of the 19th annual National No-Tillage Conference in Cincinnati, so we thought we'd make this edition of E-Tip a special issue.

We have five stories previously published in No-Till Farmer that came from the presentations made at the 2008 event — the last time we were on the bank of the Ohio River. Registered No-Till Farmer Web site users can access these articles. If you haven't registered, yet, it's easy. Just click here to sign up.

Today is the final day to register for the conference at our lowest available rate of $249 (just $222 for additional farm or family members). And there are still rooms available at the Hyatt Hotel for just $99 per night when you ask for the NNTC rate.

We're making the final preparations for what could be a record-setting event. Registration is strong, showing once again that farmers are thirsting for ideas and tips on how to no-till or how to no-till better.

 We are looking forward to kicking off 2011 in Cincinnati, and we wish you a productive year of no-till.
