Save $25 by Registering by January 20 for the 2011 Oklahoma No Till ConferenceWed, 19 Jan 2011 16:43:55 CST
Farmers and ranchers seeking to benefit from the latest developments in no-till cropping systems should register now to attend the Feb. 1-2 Oklahoma No-Till 2011 Conference.
“A key advantage of attending the conference is the opportunity to interact with both technical specialists and experienced no-till farmers,” said Chad Godsey, Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension cropping systems specialist. “It’s a great way for producers to get answers to any number of questions they may have about no-till systems.”
The conference will take place at Norman’s National Center for Employee Development (NCED), located at 2801 State Highway 9 East. Conference sessions will begin at 8 a.m. on both days and will finish mid- to late-afternoon.
Cost of attending the conference is $125 per person if registering by Jan. 20, and $150 per person thereafter. Reservation information is available online- CLick here and look for the No Till Conference listing to register..
“The conference will take place even in the event of inclement weather,” Godsey said. “Unfortunately, resource and facility commitments dictate that refunds cannot be given unless written notice is provided up to one week prior to the start of the conference.”
Session topics will include managing soil acidity in no-till; proper use of tissue testing; no-till production of wheat, cotton, corn and soybeans; water use of double crops compared with traditional fallow periods; on-farm research; soil biology; and intensified management tips and practices, among others.
“Topics will be covered in either general or break-out sessions,” Godsey said. “A detailed agenda will be made available prior to the conference, as we’re still currently fine-tuning a few details to maximize the learning experience for participants.”
Sponsors for the 2011 conference include OSU’s Division of Agricultural Sciences and National Resources, Natural Resource Conservation Service, Oklahoma Conservation Commission, Oklahoma Soybean Board, Monsanto, Wylie Manufacturing and the High Plains Journal.
