Experienced no-till producers, Extension specialists and industry and government agency experts will discuss the many attributes and advantages of no-till agriculture during the seventh annual No-till Oklahoma conference March 11-12 in Norman.

Session topics will include the latest science-based practices and information relative to intensive wheat management, soil health, nutrient management, new RMA rules for cover crops, cover crop water use, growing and maintaining a canola stand, the yield potential of grain sorghum in crop rotations, rotational considerations for plant disease in canola and wheat systems, the impact of gypsum and lime on no-till soil pH and aluminum toxicity, the economics of no-till versus conventional tillage practices, among others.

“No-till management has proven to be a success in most crop rotations in the Southern Plains, especially where water is the primary factor limiting crop productivity,” said Jason Warren, Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension soil and water conservation-management specialist.

“Think of the conference as one-stop shopping, with discussions and educational sessions providing insights that should prove useful to beginning and experienced producers alike.”
