Focusing on Smarter, Sustainable Fertilizing Strategies

In agriculture, improved management practices have to make sense in dollars and cents. Sustainable agriculture means stewardship of the land, air and water — but it also means doing this in a way that is profitable over the long-term.

Sustaining and further improving crop yield is the best objective of soil health. Continuous improvement of crop yield is extremely dependent on how we plan to invest and sustain the soil ecosystem to withstand environmental threats and stripping of key nutrients needed to sustain agriculture.

Welcome to No-Till Passport — a new feature debuting on the No-Till Farmer website! Twice per month, the editors of No-Till Farmer will be sharing with you stories of successful no-till and cover crop practices throughout the world.
No-tillers in North America are certainly not just part of a successful movement in their own area, but also part of a world-wide movement as farmers seek out ways to make their operations more profitable, efficient and sustainable. South America, New Zealand and Australia are among the world’s leaders in no-till acreage, and adoption in many other countries is catching up.
