It’s been almost 6 decades since Harry Young Jr. no-tilled the first commercial plot of corn in Herndon, Ky., and no-till has certainly come a long way since, as the bold experiment set off an agricultural evolution across the U.S. and globally. But farmers must still log a profit as they do right by soil health to stay in business. 

During a business-focused General Session at the recent 30th annual National No-Tillage Conference held at Louisville's Galt House Hotel, Jan. 4-7, 2022, "The Future of No-Tilling — Business and Profit," John Young, Harry’s son, and Harry’s grandsons Alex and Jeffrey, shared data culled from a cutting-edge econometric formula to discuss the economic forecast for yields, prices and production trends across the globe to clarify what the profit picture could look like in the future for no-tillers. The Youngs discussed how no-tillers can use this data to position themselves to farm not only more sustainably but more profitably in the future.

The Young's presentation along with each of the 12 other inspiring, informational General Sessions from the 30th annual "NNTC" will be available for free on-demand replay viewing from Feb. 24-25, 2022, during the National No-Tillage Conference Video Review, a unique and convenient online event allowing no-tillers to learn from leading experts remotely on any device with an internet connect, from the tractor cab, in the farm office or on the go. From cover crops to nutrient efficiency to pest management, and more, the 13 General Sessions shared during the Video Review will deliver an abundance of practical, proven no-till strategies that no-tillers can implement into their operations today.
