Conservation tillage has become the standard, but implementation of conservation tillage systems is still being developed. Farm policy is moving to more intensified conservation on-farm to further environmental stewardship while still promoting farm profitability and agricultural sustainability. Farmers can take the lead in pushing the envelope of conservation tillage systems and be involved in the dialogue that shapes adoption, policy and research. Farmers are the primary vehicle for change in agriculture. Their successful management of crop production using conservation tillage systems will benefit both the agricultural community and society.
