NRCS Promotes Soil Health Practices with No-Till November

No-Till November is here! In its third year, this campaign created by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) aims to promote healthy soil management practices by encouraging farmers to avoid tilling or plowing their fields this fall and keeping unharvested plants in the ground.

Inspired by the cancer awareness campaign, “No-Shave November,” NRCS similarly encourages farmers to “keep the stubble” on their harvested crop, which not only promotes soil health, but also saves time and money.
To learn more about the history of the campaign, as well as the benefits of no-tilling, visit NRCS’s website.
