Tillage is one of the oldest tenets of agriculture. It can be difficult to imagine breaking away from such a deep-seated practice, but what if we did? What would a no-till landscape look like? Tillage increases the loss of our precious topsoil, so it is good to hear from some folks who are doing things differently. Helen Atthowe will share her experiences in Montana and California. Paul and Elizabeth Kaiser’s Singing Frogs Farm is an organic, no-till vegetable operation that provides significant net income. No-till is an area too long ignored by the organic community because of the difficulty of adopting the practice without herbicides. This workshop is approved for 1.5 CEU credits for Certified Crop Advisors.
