Profitability Strategies: Earning More with Regenerative Ag [Webinar]
October 15, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Want to improve your farm’s resilience and profitability? Are you working to sustain and build your operation for the next generation? Are you interested in incorporating regenerative ag practices but want insights & support from experts to ensure success?
Adding cover crops, reducing tillage, and other practices can help benefit your soil and your bottom line. And now, increased soil organic matter or reduced greenhouse gas emissions from these practices can also generate verified carbon credits, which are increasingly in demand by buyers, such as major corporations.
To learn more, join the editors of No-Till Farmer for a free webinar on Thursday, October 15 at 10 a.m. CT, “Profitability Strategies: Earning More with Regenerative Ag,” to learn how adopting practices that are good for your farm can also benefit your bottom line.
