Fill out the on-line registration form with your information and indicate that you will pay by phone. Do not complete the section for paying by credit card on-line as you will not receive the Nebraskan discount using this method. To receive the discount and make your payment, call 785-210-4525 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. (Central Time), after completing the on-line registration form. No-till on the Plains (NTOP) will check to see if you are one of the first 25 first-time attendees or if you are one of the first 50 repeat attendees and process your registration accordingly.
The main purposes of the NET grant are
- to enhance the adoption of continuous no-till systems,
- to educate producers about soil health, and
- to provide networking opportunities for producers to learn more about no-till and soil health.
The No-till on the Plains Winter Conference — the largest gathering of its kind in North America — provides all three kinds of educational opportunities. The Winter Conference and Trade Show will be followed by the Agriculture’s Innovative Minds Symposium on Jan. 28. A reduced combination pricing is available for both events if registering before Dec 19.
