2009 Tour Wrap-Up

The Conservation In Action Tour 2009 was a success! More than 80 people from 15 states joined CTIC in Western Illinois for a one-day tour visiting three farms and three agricultural facilities. We visited with successful farmers who have mastered innovative conservation practices in their profitable operations and we learned about new tools and technologies that make conservation agriculture not only good for the environment but good for the farm’s bottom line.
What was the most valuable part of the tour? See what participants said...
"Excellent variety of presentations and the diversity of the group attending." "What a fantastic day! It's wonderful to see so many groups working together for a great cause. Great hosts, great food, great conversation. I hope this tour continues and grows every year!" Learning from the land stewards who share their experiences."
"In-field look at practices implemented by farmers doing no-till and strip-till. Networking with other growers." "Great day! Very informative and everyone was well prepared and organized." "Interaction between different groups and views with the same goal in mind."
"Getting the chance to learn about efficiency practices in development and practice." "Interacting with people from many different states." "The complete tour. It was a great blend of producers, service providers and technology."
