No-Till Training Webinar Series

In 2018, the UVM Extension Northwest Crops and Soils (NWCS) team hosted a No-Till Training Program for Agricultural Technical Service Providers (TSP). This training was created to help foster a stronger working knowledge of no-till equipment, soil health, and technology used to make no-till systems successful, better enabling TSPs to support farms and farm operators in the no-till transition. The training included a winter webinar series and 4 on-farm in-field intensives during the 2019 growing season. Recordings from the webinar series have been made available on the NWCS YouTube channel under the No-Till Training Program playlist. They are also provided below:
