John Rea farms 8000 acres in a 7- to 9-inch annual rainfall zone 20 miles west of Walla Walla, WA. Crops are continuous spring cereals: hard red and soft white spring wheat, and spring barley. No-till drills and fertilizer have made a major difference for this farmer since the late 1970s. Series made possible by grant from the USDA Western Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program, with additional funds from STEEP III (Solutions to Economic and Environmental Problems). 8 pages.
