No-Till Planter Workshop

No Till: It’s more than the planter, but the planter is a good place to start

Jeff Sanders of UVM Extension’s NW Crops and Soils Program, and Rico Balzano of the Natural Resources Conservation Service will present “No Till: It’s more than the planter, but the planter is a good place to start.” The workshop will address what the system of “no-till” entails, things to consider before converting to “no-till”, and where to go for funding for the conversion. These presentations will be followed by a talk and demonstration on changing the corn planter to a “no-till” drill, and a discussion on planter maintenance and upgrades.
