No-Till Farming's Effect on May Flood 
May flooding caused extensive damage to agricultural production in Tennessee, but experts say it could have been much worse if not for the widespread use of no-till crop production.

No-Till Hills 
There was a time when sloped land was just about useless because of frequent soil erosion. But now, hilly terrain can be productive. 'No-till” farming makes it possible.
