Spring planting is done and the SoilWarrior is back in the shed until fall or next spring, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t continue to learn about strip- till at different events this summer. From national conferences to training days there is something for every strip-till farmer or enthusiast wanting to learn more.
The 2018 National Strip-Tillage Conference will be held July 26-27 in Iowa City, Iowa.
