2018 No-Till Conference

No-Till Conference, Events

The 2018 No Till Conference held in Bergville, Kwa Zulu Natal took place from Tuesday the 4th until Thursday the 6th of September.

Day one consisted of an international speaker from the United States Steve Groff whom is an expert in the selection and management of cover crops around the world. The various talks on Tuesday where followed by live equipment demonstrations on a nearby farm.

Monosem decided to rather start the demonstration 20m backwards to show how effective the auto reset tines are even through the infield dirt road

Monosem had one of its flagship models an 8 row No Till pull type planter on demonstration.

Day two and three consisted of more talks in the conference hall, farm visits and time to view and talk around equipment displays.

With the conference being held in early September before the spring rains the demonstrations are always in considerably tough and dry soils to which Monosem has never shied away from. With the tines set to nearly their deepest Monosem managed to pull their planter to just over 10kms an hour with full tine and coulter penetration.
