USDA: Producers should participate in “No-Till November”

USDA is encouraging farmers to take advantage of “No-Till November”!

The Natural Resources Conservation Service says that no-till or low-till practices have multiple benefits, helping manage dust, preventing erosion, and improving water absorption.
It is also a good way to keep nutrients in the ground and capture carbon.

The Idaho chapter says that the group is always available as a resource for producers.

“We are happy to sit down at any of our field offices and talk with farmers and ranchers who are raising crops, whether to feed their livestock or to sell at market, and talk to them about ways that we can help them with their stewardship of the soil and soil health, so that they get all of the returns that they were hoping for,” Mindi Rambo explains.
