The Conservation Technology Information Center (CTIC) is holding its Conservation in Action Tour in Indiana in July.
Sponsored by Specialty Fertilizer Products (SFP), the tour will take place in and around central Indiana on July 17. Stops include farms in Brownsburg, Lebanon, Frankfort, Arcadia, and Atlanta. At each location, growers will showcase their conservation practices and answer questions.
For the second year, CTIC has organized a day-long tour to showcase successful growers who have mastered innovative conservation practices in their profitable operations. Various aspects of conservation agriculture will be highlighted, including decades of continuous no-till, strip till, meeting the demand for corn, managing rising input costs, improving manure nutrient control through water and feed rations, tile ditch drainage, and more.
Registration for the tour is $50 for CTIC members and $75 for non-members (which includes an individual membership). The registration fee includes coach transportation; lunch, dinner and snacks; and a full day of information plus the invaluable connection with others in agricultural conservation. The tour hotel is located in Indianapolis and a discounted rate is available for tour guests. Tour space is limited; early registrations are recommended. All registrations must be received by June 27. For more information or to register for the tour, contact CTIC at 765-494-9555 or [email protected]
