No-till planting. A contribution to productivity and environmental sustainability.
Argentina is the country with the highest percentage of no-till planting worldwide and a production capable of providing food for 400 million people.


No-till planting began as a farming technology that reduces degradation of soils With better use of rainwater adn it has proven to be economically efficient as well as providing improved yields and thus a more sustainable agriculture . 

Today it is valued as an evolved system that has as supreme objectives not only the inclusion of the conservation and efficient use of natural resources, but it has also become the only production system that can sustain growth of world food production and the only system that is able to mitigate the effect of climate change. This is especially in those areas where the most severe effects are emerging for global warming and the consequent shortage of water.
