Just as each field is unique, no two tillage practices are exactly the same. To help producers make the tillage choice best for their fields, Farm Journal is excited to announce its first-ever Farm Journal Tillage College. Held July 24 at the Corn College Campus in Heyworth, Ill., the event will cover all types of tillage including no-till. Led by Farm Journal Field Agronmist Ken Ferrie, the training will also include cover crops and soil health sessions.

"The all-new Tillage College, which literally covers all types of tillage, is producers' only opportunity to attend an experiential training that blends classroom training with in-field breakout sessions," said Charlene Finck, Senior Vice President, Editorial Content. "Registration is off to a great start, and we look forward to having a full crowd." Tillage College will offer attendees one of the most hands-on educational experiences in the industry.

Interactive sessions include live tillage demonstrations combined with soil pits that show the importance of not only running tillage tools correctly, but also matching the correct tool to the environment and agronomic goal. Attendees will also look at soil pits showing the effects of different tillage passes and how it plays into water management.

The one-day Tillage College will conclude with a networking happy hour and Q&A with all presenters during dinner.

Sponsors for the event, to date, include: AgriGold; BASF; Chevrolet; Cover Crop Solutions; FMC; Great Plains Manufacturing, Inc.; Precision Planting; and SFP. For more information about this new event, click here.
