Winning combo: No-till & cover crops
By: Bill Spiegel
A group of farmers saw the latest in cover crops in no-till systems on a recent tour.
Two dozen farmers from Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and South Dakota participated in the annual "Points North Tour" from No-till on the Plains in August. The three-day tour made several stops in Nebraska and South Dakota to teach no-till farmers the finer points of using no-till cover crops, including crop rotation, soil structure, cover crops and water use efficiency.
