No-Till Passport

No-Till Passport

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.
Please enjoy these success stories, and if you know of any other international no-till success stories, please email them to
