MONTANA – Back by popular demand, the United States Department of Agriculture is celebrating No-Till November. 

This fall, the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service encourages America’s agricultural producers to keep the stubble and give their farm a more rugged, natural look. 

Many farmers till during the fall, but there are so many good reasons not to: no-till improves soil health by not disturbing soil microbiology; beneficial soil microbes are essential for growing food, fiber and fuel; no-till improves the soil’s water holding capacity and keeps soils in place, preventing harmful runoff and erosion; and no-till saves time, money (fuel) and wear on equipment. It’s an economically sound choice.
