Using a Trifecta of Tools to Improve Soil and Water Quality

Combining no-till, strip-till, cover crops and livestock isn’t easy, but second-generation farmer Robb Ewoldt has gotten it done on his 1,100-acre farm, which includes 125 beef cattle, horses and a 2,400-head wean-finish barn, where they feed pigs for Eichelberger Farms. The Davenport, Iowa, grower will explain how this varied set of tools has helped him improve soil and water quality, reduce soil erosion and lower his use of crop protection products. And he’ll add lessons he’s learned from 25 years of implementing cover crops, document the value his operation has gained from a no-till, cover-crop system
