Steve Tucker: No-Till and Cover Cropping USB/CD
This session will be a thoughtful look at the role no-till and cover cropping play in soil health, farm resiliency, profitability, as well as a look at how one converts a large-scale operation to regenerative practices.
Steve Tucker is a dryland, no-till farmer in Venango, Nebraska. The transition of the farm away from conventional methods of tillage to a complete no-till system was not easy. Steve studied and experimented along with his grandfather to find methods that worked on the farm that only averages 14 inches of moisture a year. It didn’t take long to see that no-till farming practices were going to help increase efficiency, soil quality, reduce erosion and increase the bottom line.
