Abstract The project involved twenty counties in northwest Ohio to demonstrate no-till and conservation tillage methods to farmers. Local Soil and Water Conservation District personnel were contracted by the Department of Natural Resources, Division of Soil and Water Conservation to demonstrate conservation tillage methods with their District farmers. Comparison fields of conventional and conservation tillage were done side-by-side and the data collected over a period of four years to evaluate yields, costs, time savings, fertilizer and pesticide use. Districts were allowed to purchase no-till equipment to be used in this project. The demonstration effort was to show sediment and phosphorus reductions in the runoff as result of the tillage practice to improve the water quality in Lake Erie.
