Conservation Agriculture and No-till Farming Association – CANFA was established in February 1996 after a very successful field day held in a paddock just North of Parkes – NSW trialling new machinery for minimal till. Over 1,300 people turned up, most farmers who wanted to learn of new ways to farm, make money and care for the soil.

Most farmers now farm with minimal till (or even zero till), so that has been a big changed in farming behaviour, though now we have new problems like weed resistance, so onwards ever upwards.
