The CTC is the most comprehensive soil health conference in the Upper Midwest. The conference's mission is to connect farmers with unbiased research, relevant equipment and services, and provide ample networking opportunities. Each year relevant topics are selected based on interactions with the farming community. Presenters address farming techniques and equipment, cost concerns, and other management issues related to reducing tillage and adding cover crops to our farming systems. By improving soil health, farmers can expect better water management, reduced erosion, and a higher return on investment.
