No-till conference is July 22 to 23

Oklahoma

The Oklahoma No-Till 2011 Conference is set for July 22 to 23.

"A key advantage of attending the conference is the opportunity to interact with both technical specialists and experienced no-till farmers," said Chad Godsey, Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension cropping systems specialist. "It's a great way for producers to get answers to any number of questions they may have about no-till systems."

The conference will take place at Norman's National Center for Employee Development, located at 2801 State Highway 9 East. Conference sessions will begin at 8 a.m. on both days and will finish mid- to late-afternoon.

Reservation information is available at http://orangehub.okstate.edu.

"We originally had the conference scheduled for Feb. 1 but were literally snowed under," Godsey said. "A number of producers who had pre-registered told us to hold onto their fee and just tell them when the meeting would take place. July turned out to be the next best choice, and we don't have to worry about blizzards affecting everyone's travel plans."

Session topics will include managing soil acidity in no-till; proper use of tissue testing; no-till production of wheat, cotton, corn and soybeans; water use of double crops compared with traditional fallow periods; on-farm research; soil biology; and intensified management tips and practices, among others.

Sponsors for the 2011 conference include OSU's Division of Agricultural Sciences and National Resources, Natural Resource Conservation Service and Oklahoma Conservation Commission.

For persons wishing to stay at the NCED, mention the Oklahoma No-Till 2011 Conference to get the conference rate of $77 per night.

For reservations, contact the NCED online at www.nced.com or by phone at 405-447-9000, extension zero.
