The Importance of No-Till Farming: Improving Long-Term Field Health

While the practice of no-till has been around for a long time, there continues to be a growing interest among farmers looking to switch from conventional tillage to no-till. From an agronomy standpoint, this type of conservational practice plays a vital role in keeping your field, and soil, healthy in the long run. It’s a very low impact method of growing crops, with little disturbance to the ground and its organic matter. On top of that, there are well-documented economic benefits with this practice. E4 Crop Intelligence has decades of experience working with farmers to get the most out of their no-till operation. The team has put together insight into the importance of no-till and considerations when switching to this practice.
