Harvesting The History Of No-Till Research With Don Reicosky And Randall Reed
In September of 2021, No-Till Farmer commissioned a project to determine the most significant research and publications that assisted in the understanding, and adoption, of no-till agriculture. Randall Reeder, retired ag engineer from Ohio State University and Don Reicosky, retired USDA soil scientist, collaborated on a detailed process to complete the large and aggressive project in advance of three important no-till milestones in 2022.

Inspiring, Practical, Full-Scope
I find these podcasts of No-Till Farmer exceptional in content & inspiration to advance: farming as a viable & dignified livelihood; the stewardship of natural resources; and develop an agricultural & food system truly healthy for all parties. There’s science & economic realities, farmer testimonies of multi-year or multi-decades experiences & wisdom, with a broad spectrum of techniques, approaches, challenges, & perspectives. I am in Vermont (USA) where dairy & livestock have dominated farming for nearly 200 yrs, with short growing season, low per capita incomes, & now a diminishing dairy farmer population with huge environmental & economic pressures. Where regulatory & Extension influence has been strong there is growing adoption of no-till & cover cropping in silage corn, but most is still post-harvest ‘winter rye’, which is too late planted for fall-winter nutrient sequestration. Showing farmers both economic benefits & techniques for better cover crop & no-till management is serious challenge. No-Till Farmer keeps me enthusiastic. Please do a series focusing on N NY & N New England to highlight successes & to help us ‘tool-up’ for more rapid adoption before we lose more of our farmers & our farming culture forever!
I’m sad to hear your guest mention using round up. Monsanto—so helpful? I think not. —Not to our environment, our food, nor our future.
Love this podcast
Hey, I love this podcast. So glad to hear you will have a second season. This is the first year of my farm, its no-till and I wish I had listened to all the episodes last year so I would have a better strategy for getting rid of all of my perriennal weeds. Every epsidoe I learn something new, especially loved the one with Karl Hammer. Keep it up and thanks for making it.
