Focus On No-Till

Growing crops without tilling the soil has proven to be better for the land, more profitable for farmers, and causes the least environmental impact of any production method. No-till farming is the only known method that halts the ancient problem of soil erosion and degradation wrought by tillage. Because of the soil processes involved, no-till (with adequate crop diversity and plentiful mulch on the soil surface) is the only cropping system that can be called ‘sustainable’ with any veracity.

Pinnacle Crop Tech’s consulting services smooth the transition for producers who often have had tillage indoctrinated in their thoughts and farming practices since they were small children. Further, Pinnacle endeavors to continually improve the methods for no-tillage cropping systems, and to assist growers in implementing the latest techniques and addressing new challenges as they arise.
