BROOKFIELD, Wis., /PRNewswire/ -- After 7 years, the annual National Strip-Tillage Conference is returning to Bloomington-Normal, Ill., for its 10th-anniversary gathering. The event is hosted by Strip-Till Farmer, one of several properties operated by Wisconsin-based agricultural publisher Lessiter Media, which has helped farmers successfully transition to Conservation Ag practices for 50-plus years.

Billed as the world's largest gathering of strip-tillers and experts, the National Strip-Tillage Conference will be held August 3-4 at the Bloomington-Normal Marriott Hotel & Conference Center. A pre-conference workshop will be held at Precision Panting's PTI Research Farm during the afternoon on August 2, followed by the official Welcome Reception & Dinner onsite at the PTI Farm in the evening.

A special 10th-anniversary agenda covers myriad topics for profitable results in strip-till farming, including equipment set-ups, cover crops, intercropping, economic analyses, soil testing/analysis, fertilizing methods and more.

Unique from other ag conferences, the National Strip-Tillage Conference offers a mix of general sessions, classrooms, farmer-to-farmer roundtables and face-time with suppliers -- all designed for maximum networking and the practical transfer of experience and knowledge. Attendees may earn Certified Crop Adviser Continuing Education Credits. The 2023 program includes:

11 Classrooms -- in-depth presentation-style sessions convey practical, actionable ideas from experienced strip-tillers on the most pressing needs.

Exclusive Pre-Conference Workshop -- Attendees can experience hands-on learning at Precision Planting's renowned 400-plus acre research farm as they rotate through 3 guided programs that explore the latest in strip-till technology.
