[Webinar] Cover Cropping to Aid the Transition to No-Till and Lessons Learned Jumping in Feet First


Johnny Hunter has not been afraid to jump into no-till and cover cropping with both feet first. The Essex, Mo., farmer of 5,400 acres began his transition to no-till in 2012 and immediately began working with various cover crops in his diverse system that includes field corn, popcorn, soybeans, rice and pumpkins.

In this installment of the No-Till Farmer webinar series sponsored by KB Seed Solutions, Hunter shared the following about his cover cropping system: 

  • The decision process he went through in selecting cover crops and what he found that worked and didn’t work for him 
  • The way to effectively terminate cover crops so they don’t impact the yield potential of your cash crop 
  • Where he sees the future of cover crops on his farm based on what he has learned to date 

In addition, Hunter shared some bonus findings on his farm, including how his nutrient management system in corn has changed in recent years and how he has implemented furrow irrigation into his no-till system.

The presentation was followed by a Q&A session.
