Conservation Tillage

Conservation tillage is a practice that sizes residue for breakdown, minimizes soil disturbance and increases organic matter. Through this practice, producers are able to make less passes across the field and reduce nutrient runoff. Conservation tillage is becoming more widespread across the state due to its cost effectiveness and its reduction of soil erosion while still managing residue. Many farmers who enjoy spending time working ground, but don’t want to totally destroy soil structure also find this a reasonable substitute to more traditional tillage methods.
