In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone.

John Aeschliman

in Colfax, WA

Why No-Till?

The expense in time, money and loss of soil due to both tillage erosion and water erosion on our steep hills drove me to consider alternative farming methods such as minimum till or no-till. John now direct seeds 100% of the acres he farms. With more that twenty years of direct seeding under his belt John has seen the long term benefits that a direct seed program provides. The soil quality has improved because of better water infiltration and higher organic matter content. Earthworms have become plentiful in John's fields where under a conventional tillage system they were almost non existent.
