No-Till Planning

The no-till planter will be used for at least three farms this year at Dancu, Iabloana and Vadul lui Isac. These farmers have been instructed in the specific requirements for a good result and are eager to proceed.

In April, Leslie Yoder and Herb Graybill, board members with no-till experience, will be in Moldova to supervise the work. Russian language copies of a booklet Steps Toward a Successful Transition to No-Till by Sjoerd Duiker will be given to each farmer.

During the same visit several Level I assistance farmers will be visited to monitor their planting and offer any assistance requested. A credit Union, InvestCredit, has invited ASM to meet with some of their farmer clients to determine possible cooperation.

The May Newsletter will have pictures of the planting.
