‘Eye on Energy’ conference Jan. 30-31

Spiraling energy costs are forcing farmers to take a hard look at every agronomic practice on their operations, especially tillage. Farmers can learn how conservation tillage can be a perfect fit to help control input costs at the 2007 Conservation Tillage Conference and Expo, Jan. 30-31, at the Ramkota Hotel and Conference Center in Sioux Falls, S.D.

The theme of the conference is Eye on Energy.

University experts and conservation-focused farmers will look at ways that conservation practices can help stretch energy dollars. The conference provides tillage information for beginners as well as veteran no-till, strip till, ridge-till and mulch-till growers.

The program offers four information tracks:

· Learn the Basics: Tillage 101

· Keep Corn on Corn Profitable

· Manage Your Energy Costs

· Match New Technology to Tillage

To register, visit or call (800) 722-5334, ext. 14698. The conference is sponsored by The Corn And Soybean Digest and Farm Industry News.
