Groups unite to sponsor no-till meeting March 18


Three Kansas-based organizations are uniting to offer a free meeting for area producers on grazing and continuous no-tillage from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, March 18, in the Burns Community Building.

The meeting, presented by No-Till on the Plains Inc., Water­shed Restoration and Protection Strategy and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, is intended to appeal to entry-level to advanced no-tillers by providing ways to improve soil health and discussing how to transition Conservation Reserve Program acres directly into a no-till cropping system.

The contention is that grazing, cover crops, rotations, intensity and sequencing can add to the profitability of a farm operation.

Presentations will be made by Ken Miller, Darrell Oswald, Glenn Bauer and Joshua Dukart, who received enthusiastic reviews from audiences at the annual winter conference and many of the No-till on the Plains bus tours.

For more information, or to register by Friday, March 13, contact the office at 888-330-5142 or visit the Web site at notill.org.
