BROOKFIELD, Wis. — The organizers of the largest farmer-attended strip-tillage conference in the nation announce 12 companies have joined on as partners for the 4th annual National Strip-Tillage Conference in Omaha, Neb., on Aug. 3-4, 2017.

Blu-Jet Mfg. Co., Copperhead Ag, Dawn Equipment Co., Environmental Tillage Systems, Ingersoll, Kuhn Krause, Montag Mfg., PureGrade from The Andersons, Vulcan Equipment and Yetter Mfg. Co., will return as title sponsors, with AgroLiquid and Schlagel Mfg. joining for 2017. All 12 companies will exhibit during the two-day educational event.

 “We’re excited to have these ag companies take a leadership role in supporting this strip-till-focused event and helping us bring a quality learning experience to farmers excited about learning more about strip-till practices,” says Jack Zemlicka, managing editor of Strip-Till Farmer. “Our goal with the support of these leading companies is to provide growers with 2 intense days of peer-to-peer strip-till learning that gives them tried-and-proven practices to take back to their farm and put to good use.”

The first three conferences, held in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa, and Bloomington, Ill., attracted hundreds of national and international attendees. The 2016 conference alone connected attendees from more than 20 states and 3 continents, during 7 general sessions, 12 classrooms, 20 roundtables and on-site networking.

Registration is now open for the 2017 event at $234 per person and $214 for additional farm or family members. As part of the registration price, growers will receive a 1-year subscription to No-Till Farmer (a $44.95 value) and more valuable special reports, as well as lunch, dinner and breakfast during the 2-day event.
