Spots are still available for the 2014 No-till on the Plains bus tour, August 5-8. The tour will start in Kansas and work through Oklahoma. The deadline for registration has been extended until July 31, 2014.
The tour will originate in Salina, KS with pick up points in Halstead, KS and Stillwater, OK. Participants will get to see long-term no-till fields, cover crop plots in Kansas and Oklahoma, cover crops used for forage and soil pits at several stops. There will also be professional no-till experts and long-term producers riding the bus. Tour participants will get the opportunity to network with these people and learn about their work and production practices.
A visit to the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation is planned on August 6. Tour participants will stay on the Noble Foundation campus, hear from Foundation staff, learn about the services offered and get a tour of the facilities. This is a great opportunity to experience a world-class agriculture organization and facility.
