The editors of Strip-Till Farmer magazine have announced that J.J. Nichting, a 5-store Case IH dealer group, will be the official machinery dealer partner of the National Strip-Tillage Conference.

The 2-day event will be held July 28-29 at the Hyatt Regency Coralville Hotel & Conference Center in Coralville, Iowa. Now in its ninth year, the National Strip-Tillage Conference features an industry unique format of general sessions, classrooms and farmer-to farmer roundtables.

“We’re excited to be the official machinery dealer partner of the annual National Strip-Tillage Conference in its return to Iowa for the first time in 4 years,” says Pat McCrabb, general manager, J.J. Nichting. “In addition to the support of our customers’ education and networking on the strip-till practice, we’re excited to welcome growers to our new West Liberty location (just 17 miles from the conference) and to showcase our service capabilities and parts and wholegoods inventories.”

J.J. Nichting is a family-owned ag equipment dealership that has served Midwestern farmers for more than a century. Considered to be the longest operating ag equipment dealer in the U.S., its other Iowa locations include Grinnell, Pilot Grove, Mt. Pleasant and Sigourney.

The industry-leading facility design along I-80 features a 270-by-90-foot shop, a state-of-the-art geothermal system, and a 17,000-square-foot parts department. The facility also includes a large showroom and training room.

A $50.00 Early Bird Registration discount is available through May 31, 2022, and attendees who register their farm and family members receive additional savings. For more information and to register for the conference, visit

Held during the same week and at the same venue as the 2022 Dealership Minds Summit (July 26-27), the National Strip-Tillage Conference offers a valuable opportunity for ag equipment dealers to learn about the growing strip-tillage market and how to serve their customers who are actively investing in the practice or considering it.

Ag equipment dealers can attend both the National Strip-Tillage Conference and Dealership Minds Summit in one trip and at a discounted individual attendee rate of just $498, providing a valuable opportunity to meet with all the strip-till manufacturers in one place. Visit the National Strip-Tillage Conference FAQs to learn more about discounted pricing for both events, or to bring a group of customers. Find out how your dealership can create a shared learning experience — with contracted equipment orders — like other dealer groups have achieved at the event.
