SoilWarrior Academy: Beyond the Zone

SoilWarrior owners know that strip-tillage is a great way to cut production costs, be more efficient with time and nutrient placement, along with building soil health. The journey to developing the right strip-till system for your farm can take a few seasons of experimentation, practice, and persistence.

We invite all SoilWarrior owners to get SoilWarrior® Certified at the all new SoilWarrior Academy on Tuesday, August 2 at Iowa Western Community College in Council Bluffs, IA. This year’s theme is Beyond the Zone. The training is aimed to help operators better understand their SoilWarrior system for more confident field operations and greater soil health.  Sessions will be led by the SoilWarrior experts at Environmental Tillage Systems.

This is a great opportunity for new SoilWarrior operators to get familiar with the machine and seasoned operators to refresh their knowledge. This one-day training will include SoilWarrior basics, latest technology from our precision specialist, zone tillage with ETS agronomist Eric Moore, and a discussion panel that will include seasoned SoilWarrior operators. New for 2017, a SoilWarrior will be on-site to allow for a visual learning sessions and breakout sessions for new operators (two or less operation seasons) and experienced operators (three or more seasons).  

SoilWarrior Operator Training

“Was very helpful to get some more insight on operational issues.” - 2016 operator training attendee

The National Strip- Tillage Conference will be  held the following two days in Omaha. Now in its fourth year, the National Strip-Tillage Conference has become the premier learning and networking event in the U.S. for forward-thinking farmers. “If you are considering attending, whether you are a beginning or experienced strip tiller, you will always find the answers to your questions at the National Strip-Till Conference. From my experience, the cost of attending the conference is a lot cheaper than not attending.” Mike Verdonck
