Last week, Louisville Kentucky was home to the 27th Annual National No-Tillage Conference. Myself and four other Soil Service members attended and came away with some very positive feed back and ideas to help our customers. This was my first ever No-Till Conference experience. My biggest takeaway from the conference was the discussions on cover crops. This continues to be a hot topic especially amongst no-tillers. The issues with establishing the cover crop and using them to build soil health were the most talked about.

   Ill have a more in-depth analysis on cover crops in future articles. Other topics that were discussed dealt with soil fertility placement, weed control, and no-till planter attachments. Overall the conference was a success and I look forward to sharing more in-depth information about some of the topics in future articles. As always thank you for your support of Soil Service.
