General note

Jim Halford was inducted into the SAHF for his development of the ConservaPak seeding system that allowed for seeding directly into heavy stubble so that farmers would not have to cultivate before seeding. This one-pass direct seeding significantly reduced soil erosion. The patented seeding system was sold to John Deere in 2007, thus becoming standard seeding equipment in North America and the world.
