Spiraling energy costs are forcing farmers to take a hard look at every agronomic practice on their operations, especially tillage. Farmers can learn how conservation tillage can be a perfect fit to help control input costs at the 2007 Conservation Tillage Conference and Expo, Jan. 30-31, at the Ramkota Hotel and Conference Center in Sioux Falls, S.D.

The theme of the conference is “Eye on Energy.”

University experts and conservation-focused farmers will look at ways that conservation practices can help stretch energy dollars. The conference provides tillage information for beginners as well as veteran no-till, strip till, ridge-till and mulch-till growers.

The program offers four information tracks:

  • Learn the Basics: Tillage 101
  • Keep Corn on Corn Profitable
  • Manage Your Energy Costs
  • Match New Technology to Tillage
