There are a lot of variables that can impact the yield of no-till corn — some of which you don’t have control over. One variable you can control is your no-till planter, which is why Bill Lehmkuhl says it’s most important for no-tillers to make sure they have their planters in superb working condition when they hit the field.

The no-till farmer, planter specialist and owner of Precision AgriServices in Minster, Ohio, shared his best maintenance tips and planter updates to improve seeding depth and spacing and ensure proper seed-to-soil contact. In addition, he addressed some of the improvements you and your dealer can make to your planter to overcome some of the struggles farmers encounter in trying to no-till corn and find to be a hindrance in going to 100% no-till.

Bill was voted one of the top 3 speakers at the 2015 National No-Tillage Conference. He also received the 2013 Ag Innovator Award – Business & Service.

You’ll walk away from the webinar knowing:

  • Top tips for proper planter maintenance for solid seed placement 
  • Properly adjusting no-till attachments to tackle residue 
  • Precision tools and at-plant fertilizer setups for high performance in no-till

The presentation was be followed by a Q&A session.
