"During a 'Future of No-till' presentation at Western Illinois University, New Zealander John Baker discussed how current no-till practices have only achieved about 50% of its potential conservation agriculture capability. . . .
"What is now needed is to focus on the remaining 50% of conservation agriculture’s objectives. Baker says we need to maximize the two invisible 'silver bullet' assets offered by low-disturbance no-tillage – water vapor and carbon. And only true low-disturbance no-tillage is capable of doing this, he adds."
