Honorary Advisor

Bud Davis, retired state conversation agronomist, was responsible for the technical adequacy of agronomic practices planned and implemented by USDA-NRCS in Kansas. He has a diverse background in natural resource management spanning 25 years in a variety of positions with NRCS including RC&D coordinator, district conservationist and soil conservationist.

He was a strong supporter in organizing the Kansas Crop Residue Management Alliance—the forerunner of No-till on the Plains, Inc. and has been instrumental in cultivating (no pun) partnerships and getting industry, government, and farmers around the table to promote no-till and other profitable agronomic systems. His primary work interest is the promotion of agricultural systems that are profitable and sound in the environment.
