Crop residue that breaks down quickly can return valuable nutrients to your soils and make it easier to no-till the following season. Get answers on ways to improve soil biology and residue decay by watching the replay of this No-Till Farmer webinar sponsored by Midwest Bio-Tech. The live event took place on Tuesday, September 10, 2013.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • What soil microbes need to break down residue
  • How to manage the biology of the decay process
  • Does applying sugar or nitrogen to residue help?
  • The length of time it takes to break down crop residue
  • How much nutrient (N-P-K) can be released for the next crop

High levels of residue that break down slowly and interfere with planting is one of the biggest obstacles confronting no-tillers today. Techniques on how to break down residue more quickly without compromising no-till were delivered by Doug Miller, vice president of Midwest Bio-Tech.
