Kevin Kimberley, one of the premier agricultural consultants and farm machinery experts, will headline the 2015 National Strip-Tillage Conference Aug. 5-6 in Iowa City, Iowa.
Kimberley is highly regarded for his investigative approach to assessing equipment performance in a range of tillage systems, working with farmers primarily from Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, South Dakota and North Dakota.
With more than 15 years of consulting experience, Kimberley has established himself as a provocative problem solver for farmers to increase production and profitability on their operations.
Final details on his presentations are yet to be announced, but Kimberley will present a special workshop in addition to general and classroom sessions during the 2-day event.
The host Marriott Hotel at Coralville, Iowa, along Interstate 80 outside Iowa City, Iowa, will offer an ideal learning environment for attendees to absorb dozens of actionable strip-till practices from fellow farmers, consultants, university specialists and other agricultural experts through general sessions, strip-till classrooms and roundtable discussions.
“We had 416 farmers and industry leaders attend our launch event last July and the feedback was extremely positive about the networking opportunities for strip-tillers,” says Darrell Bruggink, executive editor and publisher of No-Till Farmer, Strip-Till Strategies e-newsletter and StripTillFarmer.com. “This event provides strip-tillers a place to gather and discuss challenges in their farming operations with farmers who can deliver tips, ideas and solutions.”
Preliminary plans for the event include 6 general session speakers, several sets of classrooms covering a range of strip-till topics and more than two dozen roundtable discussions.
