Dates Set for Alliance 2022 Winter Meetings
This year the No-Till Alliance is pleased to once again host two of our popular Winter Soil Health meetings. Each will focus on a variety of topics of interest to both new and experienced no-tillers through a combination of presentations dedicated to the latest research and trends, to farmer experience with transition to full no-till and cover cropping and discussion of practical methods to reduce costs in the face of expected high input costs in 2022.
Monday, March 14, 2022 – Lebanon Fairgrounds & Expo Center (Lebanon County, PA)
Friday, March 18, 2022 – Hickory Post 6166 VFW Club (Hermitage, Mercer County, PA)

Conservation Display at Farm Show Features No-Till and Cover Crops
The 2022 PA Farm Show will once again be in-person and open to the public on January 8-15 in Harrisburg. And, once again, the No-Till Alliance is assisting with the large (nearly 3000 sq. ft.!) conservation display featuring practices such as no-till and cover crops for both commodity crops and smaller food crop operations.
With the assistance of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, it will also feature the rainfall simulator with demonstrations twice daily. In addition, there will be an appropriately fenced and buffered stream running through part of the display.
Above and below are pictures of it, just about all set up and ready for opening day. It might be the greenest January cover crop in all of Pennsylvania, thanks to Quality Greenhouses!
If you are at the Farm Show, please stop by the main expo hall and take a look.
