On this episode of Conservation Ag Update, brought to you by Montag Manufacturing, we go inside the 32nd annual National No-Tillage Conference, and catch up with the Beery family who traveled all the way from central Virginia to learn new no-till and cover crop tips. We also share one of the top moments from Dr. Fred Below’s kickoff presentation on the 7 Wonders of the Corn Yield World. Plus, associate editor Mackane Vogel catches up with soil health specialist Amanda Kautz for a demonstration on the impact on water infiltration from cover crops.  

Later in the episode, Casey Seymour, Moving Iron owner, shares his thoughts on the latest technology trends and what they mean for your equipment moving forward, Precision Planting reveals the CornerStone Planting System and soil health expert Jim Hoorman explains how you can tell if your crop is lacking certain key nutrients.
