Facebook group talks strip-till, agronomics


Loran Steinlage, farmer at West union, Iowa, is a part of a closed Facebook group where 100 or so farmers talk strip-till and agronomics. Though some members of the group have been exchanging message for a year, the official group formed in January on the social network, and memebers share pictures and ideas, learning from other farmers across the country.

“I’m involved in some other farm groups, but this one is focused on agronomy and business,” Steinlage says. “I probably call more people outside the state of Iowa than inside. If we travel across the country, I’m going to stop in and see some of them, too. You just have a wealth of experience at your fingertips with this group—experience you can’t find locally.”
