The 2017 National No-Tillage Conference (NNTC) returns in January to St. Louis for the seventh time in the conference’s 25-year history. The theme for the conference is “Quarter Century of No-Till Learning.”

The just-completed conference program, now available at, provides a glimpse into the 40-plus presentations offering the most innovative, leading-edge information farmers will absorb over the conference’s four days, Jan. 10-13, 2017.

Sharing the best no-till management practices and ideas to improve every no-tillers’ bottom line, speakers include seasoned no-tillers, agronomists, soil scientists, no-till consultants and precision farming experts from the U.S., Canada and as far as South Africa, covering everything from soil health to planter setups to cover cropping to fertility strategies — and much more.

The 25th annual event includes 13 general session presentations, 24 classrooms and 70 roundtables. Following is a sample of speakers lined up to present nearly 100 hours of in-depth no-till learning at the Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark hotel in downtown St. Louis.
