14 The Benefits of No-Till in Extreme Conditions

Episode Summary

This podcast is the sixth in the series 6 “Resilience” podcast series. We recorded this one in Crooks, SD the backdrop was the extremely wet weather on 2019. In this podcast, Kent Vlieger (NRCS-SD) facilitates a discussion with farmers Kurt Stiefvater, Ryan Larson, Nate Stroschein, Ross Hanson and SDSU’s field soils specialist Anthony Bly. We wanted to feature this episode because we were struck by the different reasons each farmer feels no-till is working for them. Ultimately this comes down to money and time and the general message from these farmers to others is that patience pays off!
