“We're excited to borrow from the no shave, because in agriculture we have our own version of stubble, at the after harvest. And so, we thought this is a great marriage of ideas, celebrating the idea that keeping the stubble is a good thing.”
Mindi Rambo with NRCS-Idaho says no-till, or low-till practices benefit producers in a variety of ways. She notes that keeping that stubble behind helps with dust, prevents erosion, and improves water absorption.
She adds that no-till or low-till is a good way to keep nutrients in the ground and promote the capture of carbon. She added NRCS is available across Idaho and the rest of the country as a resource to improve soil health year-round.
“We are happy to sit down at any of our field offices and talk with farmers and ranchers who are raising crops, whether to feed their livestock or to sell at market and talk to them about ways that we can help them with their stewardship of the soil and soil health, so that they get all of the returns that they were hoping for.”
