Minnesota Farming Leader Praises Strip-Till

Anne Schwegarl, vice president of the Minnesota’s Farmer’s Union, gives strip-till a shoutout in her column about the impact of emerging technologies on agriculture and the environment in her state. “Food producers are adapting to farming in a changing climate in many ways,” she says. “Most farmers have conservation and stewardship approaches: using minimal strip-till and no-tillage systems to produce grain or adopting managed grazing plans for livestock. Many producers are using precision agriculture technology or are planting cover crops to provide armor on soils year-round. Agriculture in 2024 is vastly different than it was when I began farming.”
