      Hi All,

      Some article about no-till - ohioline.osu.edu/sag-fact/pdf/0011.pdf.

      Take anything useful except the herbicide part...some interesting statements..

      "Long-term research reveals that 7â€"9 years of continuous no-till produces higher yields than conventional tilled fields because it takes 7â€"9 years to improve soil health by getting the microbes and
      soil fauna back into balance, and start to restore the nutrients lost by tillage."


      It looks like organic no-till also is getting more acceptance.
