Organic No-Till Farming
Organic No-Till Farming offers a map to an organic farming system that limits tillage, reduces labor, and improves soil structure. Based on the latest research by pioneering agriculturists, this book by Rodale Institute's CEO Jeff Moyer offers new technologies and tools based on sound biological principles, making it possible to reduce and even eliminate tillage. Field-tested over many seasons, these methods make cover crops into a source of fertility as well as a tool for weed management. As traditional tillage turns into rotational tillage, natural soil biology is maximized and synthetic inputs are minimized. For organic farmers who want to refine their practices and conventional farmers interested in new ideas, Organic No-Till Farming is indispensable.

Jeff Moyer in His Own Words
Listen to this Tractor Time podcast episode with Jeff Moyer – which features his speech at the 2018 Eco-Ag Conference.
His talk at our conference was aimed at helping farmers see the future of the organic certification industry, and how words like “regenerative” and “sustainable” are already being fought about in the advertising board rooms across the world.

There's not a lot of books out there on no-till, but this is the best so far that I have found. Like many books at Acres, authors hail from eastern US regions where there's plenty of rain and it's easy to grow anything. Would like to see more arid desert no-till or biological books, but Moyer doesn't claim to be the no-till book for every region, so it's worth five stars for what it does.
Good book. Enjoyed it
great read, easy to understand with good depth of concept...practical advice and intelligent methods... thanks, Jeff Moyer
