Colorado Conservation Tillage Association
|CCTA 2013 Fall Journal|
The Colorado Conservation Tillage Association (CCTA) was founded in 1988 to serve the needs of farmers searching for new ways to diversify their farms and better utilize their resources.
CCTA is a non-profit organization serving all the States in the High Plains Region. It is a collaboration of experienced farmers working with industry and University and Agricultural Agency personnel whose goal is to spread research and on-farm gained information.
Through this organization farmers have been able to utilize new technologies and techniques to enhance their overall economic position.
Traditionally a wheat-summer fallow area of the great plains, the high plains region has seen dramatic increases in alternative crops and cropping methods due, in a large part, to the work carried on by the CCTA.
