In this episode of Conservation Ag Update, we head to Frankenmuth, Mich., for the Conservation Technology Information Center’s 16th annual Conservation in Action Tour. New CTIC executive director Ryan Heiniger makes several big announcements, including a noteworthy surprise for a no-till legend.
Plus, strip-till innovators Ryan and Melissa Shaw give us a peek inside their twin-row strip-till system.
Also in the episode, Iowa no-tiller James Hepp makes a game-changing addition to his Case IH 1200 planter, fellow Iowan Luke Schultes boosts his bottom line with drones, and APV America’s Cameron White shines light on the rise of crop crops and the increasing demand for new equipment.

VF tires are constructed with sidewalls that enable them to bear heavier loads and operate at lower inflation pressures than traditional radial tires. In fact, VF tires, like our Alliance AgriFlex+ range, can carry up to 40% more load than a conventional radial tire at the same inflation pressure or operate at up to 40% lower air pressure under the same load. VF tires offer quantifiable improvements on the farm. For example, the ability to carry heavier loads can cut down significantly on fuel use and reduce machine hours, while the ability to operate at lower inflation pressures allows tires to produce larger footprints, which can improve traction and reduce soil compaction. The best part is, you can choose which benefit works best for your operation. Learn More at https://yokohama-oht.com.
