  1. Very dissapointed to hear a report promoting fall tillage. When the weather is this good, cover crops could be planted to ensure adequate deep tillage is achieved and gain the benefits of reducing soil erosion, managing nutrient loss, and building soil health. You missed a good opportunity to promote conservation!
