Panhandle No-Till Partnership is here to help arm producers with educational support, knowledge and practical use techniques for continuous no tillage cropping practices. We hope to help instill a long-term vision and keen awareness of the need for continued education to successfully endure as producers.
We offer hands-on, informational events, educational information and a weekly column written by Mark Watson called No-Till Notes for producers interested in sustaining agriculture with continuous No-Till Practices.
With this knowledge and effort we remain committed to our vision and will continue to promote No-Till Production.
The Panhandle No till Partnership will be hosting a series of field days on June 24th thru June 27th, 2013. These field days will be held at various locations throughout the Panhandle of Nebraska. These field days will focus on the benefits of continuous no till crop production on dry land farms.
Topics of discussion will cover all aspects of continuous no till crop production in our region. Each field day will provide producers with the opportunity to visit with other producers about the benefits of continuous no till crop production. The field days are a great opportunity to bring your questions and comments and share your ideas with other producers interested in learning more about continuous no till crop production.
Production and marketing of field peas will be discussed at each field day. Field peas are becoming an established crop in continuous no till crop production in our region. Field peas have proven to be the ideal grain crop for transitioning to winter wheat. There are excellent marketing opportunities in our region for field peas which will increase the acres planted to field peas significantly.
