On this episode of Conservation Ag Update, brought to you by Montag Manufacturing, we take you inside the 2024 Commodity Classic in Houston, Texas! A trio of no-tillers discuss their top planting challenges for 2024, while a pair of strip-tillers gameplan for a busy spring.

In the Cover Crop Connection, associate editor Mackane Vogel sets the stage for the 2024 National Cover Crop Summit, a virtual event that kicks off March 12.

Plus, we catch up with Great Plains Manufacturing’s Doug Jennings for an up-close look at the company’s new BD7410 narrow transport 13-foot box drill, and how its hydraulic downpressure allows no-tillers to attack difficult planting conditions. We also check out one of the panel discussions at Commodity Classic featuring analysis from former soybean world record holder Randy Dowdy on the pros and cons of dry and liquid fertilizers, and Ag Tire Talk’s James Tuschner gets the scoop on Case IH’s new Quadtrac undercarriage.
