I’ll tell you one guy who’d love to get some of this rain we’ve been talking about, is Robert Boyle. He only gets about 7 inches of rain out in Coolidge, Ariz. But that’s not stopping him from using cover crops and strip-till. Robert, what’s going on?

 “I’ll be talking this year at the Strip-Till Conference about strip-tilling in adverse conditions, reducing passes, saving water. This field of corn is a month old. It will be irrigated with a new Rain 360 unit. We’re going to start implementing banded water instead of full irrigation. Just looking at multiple ways to improve the bottom line and cut out any extra passes through the field, and making us more efficient.”  

 Looking forward to seeing Robert at the National Strip-Tillage Conference, Aug. 8-9 in Madison, Wis. Head to StripTillConference.com to reserve your spot and cash in on early bird registration savings.
