If it seems like you have already received Crop News Weekly this week and are a little confused with the arrival of this mailing, take heart, you're not losing your mind. This is a special edition of Crop News Weekly and the second time this week you have discovered us in your email-box.

Some things are simply too important to wait until next week. Such is the case of the Conservation Tillage Conference & Expo set to get underway February 8-9 in Sioux Falls, SD. Here you can discover today's newest technologies for no-till, strip-till, ridge-till and mulch-till agriculture. Participants will be able to take home hands-on knowledge of nearly every aspect of conservation tillage after this conference - the most advanced of its kind for agriculture today. But you can't go if you don't register, so consider this your formal invitation to attend the premiere conference on conservation tillage of the year. Fill out the form below and fax it back ASAP. We look forward to seeing you in Sioux Falls. -- LH
