This group's broad interest is in fully understanding the process of no-till and min-till, possibly as separate research topics, cataloguing the changes to soil conditions, biological activity and chemistry throughout the process. They are currently undertaking no-till farming, slowly converting difficult and poorly structured soils into productive fields. They are also interested in evaluating the economical savings of this technique.

This is a new group, open to other interested farmers. Please contact us for more details if you would like to get involved.

Group Topic
