Join us for an interactive field day on troubleshooting no-till systems in Southwest Michigan. If you currently no-till, have ever considered no-till, or simply enjoy talking about soil health, this event is for you. Invited speakers will discuss both challenges and successes with using no-till. Participants will be able to get a view of no-till soil surfaces and sub-surfaces through a soil pit while discussing other soil health indicators for a better understanding of the entire system.
