Conservation Tillage

Dave Legvold and Mike Peterson farm outside of Northfield, MN. Both farmers have switched from conventional tillage programs to conservation tillage using a zone-till method, allowing fewer passes as well as nutrient savings. Using zone-till also saves soil, a key to farming land with thin topsoil.
