The planning committee is closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation and the impact it may have on our event in September. Registrants will continue to receive updates about the event throughout the summer and we will communicate any changes to format as soon as possible.Learn how to economically integrate no-till, strip-till, and cover crops into your system from experienced farmers.
