Use it to plant small grains, legumes, and grasses on your fields while saving the time, money, and labor costs associated with tillage operations. By switching to No-Till, you also help conserve and build soil organic matter, improve soil moisture, reduce soil erosion, reduce soil crusting, and potentially reduce the amount of fertilizer lost and needed each season due to improved soil conditions.
