Panhandle No Till Partnership Field Days

No till farming is not a new concept. Over the last decade more farmers are switching to no till crop production to conserve water, reduce input costs and improve soil health. In a interview with KNEB/Rural Radio Network, No Till Farmer Mark Watson says farmers continue to convert to no till crop production.

This week the Panhandle No Till partnership is presenting a series of field days of six area farms. The tours focus on the benefits of continuous no -till crop production on dryland farms. On the tour, Watson says participants will visit the farms of long-term no till producers.

The tour will showcase how producers are integrating forages and cattle grazing onto their land, especially in the Banner County area. Field peas will also be a big part of the discussion at each of the tour stops.

The tour start today at 9am at the Curt Roth Farm near Clinton.
On Tuesday at 9am at the Watson Brothers Farm near Alliance
On Wednesday at 9am at the Art Olsen Farm near Harrisburg and at 2:30 at the Mark and Pat Ernest Farm near Dalton
On Thursday at 9am at Stetson Shreve's Farm near Big Springs and at 2:30 at the Steve Trucker Farm near Brandon

A meal will be provided with each field day. Find more information at panhandle no till dot org.
