Conservation Tillage Conference Provides Answers

Looking for ways to reduce costs, but keep profit margins steady?  Have you thought about how you might increase soybean yields without paying for additional inputs?  Can precision fertility work for your farm to increase production while at the same time protect the environment?  So when can I apply fertilizer and haul manure?  How can cover crops improve the soil health and recycle the nutrients in my field?

These are all questions you might have asked yourself, but have struggled to find an answer.  This year’s Conservation Tillage Conference has the answers to these questions and many more.  The McIntosh Center at Ohio Northern University will once again be the location were about 60 presenters, several agribusiness exhibitors, and approximately 900 participants will come together March 2nd and 3rd in Ada, Ohio.

A general session, Corn University, cover crops and manure, precision fertility, along with a policy discussion on soil health as it relates to water control and filtering are the sessions that make up day one.  On the second day, conference participants will be able to choose from Soybean School, advanced cover crops, nutrient management, in addition to technology and equipment as choices to gain new insights in production agriculture.

Find out what experts from OSU Extension, OARDC, USDA, and SWCD are learning from the latest research about the most timely topics that affect today’s farmers, crop consultants, and agribusiness professionals who are out in the field working together to produce crops in an efficient and environmentally responsible manner.
