The following outline was prepared in late fall 1990 to define the primary components required to design a no-till farming system. We offer opinions on the strengths and weaknesses of various options currently available for each of these components. No-till technology equipment, techniques, knowledge is changing rapidly. Portions of this document could be out of date quite quickly. The basic concepts and principles outlined, however, should be valid forever.
