Farmers from the western Piedmont to the Coastal Plain to the Blacklands of North Carolina had the floor at the Southern Conservation Tillage Conference held recently in Raleigh, North Carolina, presenting, an on-farm case for the practice that reduces erosion, increases organic matter, and saves them money. Soil scientists in attendance had plenty of questions after their presentations. "When our creeks run red or brown, it's probably not from agriculture," says Tom Pegram, Union County, North Carolina, Extension agent. The soils are clay to clay-loam in nature in the six counties surrounding Charlotte.
