The 2nd Annual National Strip-Tillage Conference will be held on Wednesday, Aug. 5, and Thursday, Aug. 6, 2015, at the Marriott Hotel in Coralville, Iowa, just outside of Iowa City.
Official attendance for the first-ever, strip-till focused meeting held last year in Iowa was 416. Strip-tillers took advantage of 32 hours of learning opportunities over the course of 2 days through general sessions, classrooms, face-to-face roundtables, hallway conversations and networking during breaks and meals. Some of the speakers in attendance included world-renowned soil biologist Jill Clapperton, Purdue University strip-till expert Tony Vyn, precision tools expert Steve Cubbage of Record Harvest and numerous other university experts, consultants and strip-tillers. Check the Strip-Till Farmer website for more updates and information about this year's event.
