Registration Now Open for the Soil Health Event of the Year, the 2019 No-Till Winter ConferenceThu, 20 Dec 2018 16:50:43 CST
Imagine getting paid well for your passion. No-till farmers have a deep passion for not only farming, but for improving the ecosystem they manage. Often times these management practices don’t fit neatly into farm programs leaving no-till farmers unsure of their protection in times of disaster and the banker acting like the Grinch.
The 2019 Winter Conference events focus on no-till and regenerative farming practices across the globe to shine a light on the social, and financial benefits of soil health practices.
To learn more about this year’s conference, Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Associate Farm Director Carson Horn reached out to Steve Swaffar, executive director of No-Till on the Plains, who offered a few highlights about this event. Listen to their complete conversation by clicking or tapping the LISTEN BAR below at the bottom of the page.
“We will have break-out sessions, general session and expert speakers from across the country to talk about soil health,” Swaffar said. “If you are somebody that just needs to get started, it’s a perfect opportunity for you.”
Featured keynote speakers this year include David R. Montgomery and Anne Biklé as well as Jay Fuhrer and Oklahoma’s own, Jimmy Emmons, among many others. Each speaker will present no less than three times over the course of the conference, giving attendees ample opportunity to pick and choose the sessions they find most interesting.
In addition to the regular schedule, the conference features both a no-till beginners’ session the day before the actual conference on Monday, January 28th and a session just for advanced no-till farmers the day after the conference concludes on Thursday, January 31st. The regular two-day meeting will happen Tuesday through Wednesday, January 29th and 30th at the Century II Convention Center in Wichita, Kan.
