Copies of the 2002 annual report of the Pacific Northwest STEEP conservation farming research and extension program are now available. The 176-page publication includes annual reports from 25 projects currently underway across the Northwest. The projects cover a wide variety of topic areas such as: crop rotations and management strategies for minimum tillage systems lower, intermediate and higher precipitation zone, and under irrigation; weed, insect and disease management strategies under minimum tillage; management options for improving soil quality and productivity; managing soil fertility and pH; direct seed drill modification for residue management; and expanding grower access to new technologies.

The report also includes several other aspects of the STEEP program. Highlights of accomplishments of the STEEP program in recent years are listed, as well as a listing of the titles of 45 project that have been funded from 1996 through 2002, at an approximate total of $3.4 million.
