Increased Soil Quality & Environmental Quality through No-till Planting

Here is a short video I found that does a good job of briefly demonstrating and explaining the benefits of no-till planting.  In Indiana, just over 60% of our Soybeans are planted by means of no-till and just over 20% of our Corn.  The Indiana State Department of Agriculture, Division of Soil Conservation and our conservation partners have some excellent resources available to help farmers who are interested in making the transition to no-till.  One great resource is our Conservation Cropping Systems Initiative.....check it out!
