No Till Farming

Uruguay follows the Argentine farming model (one of top 5 global ag producers). No-Till farming is the evolution of modern farming practices. No-Till farming applies scientific process, advanced technology and preserves as much of the farming ecosystem as possible. The net effect is lower farm costs, environmentally sound practices, and greater yields. These all contribute to greater farm income.

Crops scientifically rotated to improve soil condition and nutrients: Soy (self-pollinating), Wheat, Sorghum, Corn, Barley and Canola
         (edible oilseed rape, similar to soy as an oil-protein plant.)

 Crop residues or other organic amenities are retained on the soil surface thereby reducing erosion, and sowing/fertilizing is done with
         minimal soil disturbance.

 No-till farming encompasses 4 management practices: Minimal soil disturbance - no tilling / ploughing; maintenance of a permanent
         vegetative soil cover; direct sowing; and sound crop rotation.

 Still requires soil fertilizing and balancing, and some herbicides.
