29 Aug Special Episode: Introducing the Soil Sense Podcast – Future of Agriculture
Join us for the first installment of a two-part interview with Dr. Dave Franzen, a Soil Scientist at North Dakota State University in Extension, and Anthony Thilmony, a fourth generation farmer in the Valley City, North Dakota area. These two have collaborated for many years through discussion and trials. Today we explore soil fertility and the effect of a no-till strategy. We learn about some of the benefits including a decreased nitrogen need and increased microorganism activity to name two.
“In order to get somebody to change the way they’re doing things you either have to have an economic tag or an emotional tag.” -Dr. Dave Franzen
“My goal is when I quit farming everything is going to be in better shape than I got it and that’s what drives me with the no-till.” – Anthony Thilmony
