Spiraling energy costs are forcing farmers to examine every agronomic practice on their operations, especially tillage. That's the focus of the 2007 Conservation Tillage Conference and Expo, Jan. 30-31, themed "Eye On Energy" and slated for the Ramkota Hotel and Conference Center in Sioux Falls, SD.

University experts and conservation-focused farmers will detail how conservation practices can help stretch energy dollars. The conference provides tillage info for beginners, as well as veteran no-till, strip till, ridge-till and mulch-till growers. Offered are four tracks:

Track I: Learn the basics: Tillage 101
Track II: Keep corn-on-corn profitable
Track III: Manage your energy costs
Track IV: Match new technology to tillage
