If, after reading this month’s “Frank Comments” column, you have the idea I’m irritated and disappointed, you will be right. It’s because no-tillers don’t receive the recognition they deserve for being innovators behind today’s soil health and ag sustainability movements.

Understanding that the need for no-till knowledge is year-round and seeing the opportunity to bridge the unique learning experiences of the annual National No-Tillage Conference in-person event, No-Till Farmer is proud to launch a brand new 2-day online educational event.
Needham Ag understands the role of technology in making better use of limited resources within a specific environment by drawing on a wealth of global experience to overcome the challenges facing today's farmers, manufacturers and dealers.
