Local farmers encouraged to participate in "No-Till November"

The United States Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service encourages Missouri farmers to use no-till farming to improve soil health after harvest with its "No-Till November" campaign.

King City area farmer Michael Willis is well-versed in this practice. He says no-till farming is beneficial because it helps prevent soil erosion. Willis adds there has been an uptick in no-till farming with the advancement of agricultural technology and the dawn of a new generation on the farm.

The "No-Till November" campaign is a month-long campaign to advocate for healthier soil to improve crop yields.
