Farmers are always looking for better ways to do their job. They rely on the quality of the air, water, and soil to grow our nation’s food supply. No-till is one of those methods. The Iowa NRCS has been hitting social media with their “No-Till November” message. Humboldt County NRCS Soil Conservation Technician Doug Adams tells us about the idea behind it.

Adams says no-till allows for a better habitat for the microbes and earthworms to break down the residue.

Adams tells farmers the wet and late harvest season offers a great opportunity for farmers to give no-till a try.

For more information on no-till practices, visit your local county NRCS office.
