Russ Zenner's 3,300-acre farm in Nez Perce and Latah counties, Idaho, includes gently sloping land with deep loam soils in the Clearwater Rim area, and rolling hills near Genesee, where exposed clay ridges alternate with deep loam. Committed to preserving soil resources, Zenner has gradually worked to reduce tillage since the 1970s. His main crops of winter wheat, spring cereal, and spring pulses allow experimentation with a number of other crops. Zenner also maintains certified seed production on his Idaho acreage. Early in his career he served 12 years on the Latah County Soil Conservation District Board. 8 pages.
