Why is there a weed, disease or insect in my field? That’s the question Dwayne Beck wants no-tillers to ask themselves. The answer? It’s nature way of adding diversity to a system that lacks it. And you can try to find technologies that control problems when they pop up, or you can prevent most of them by providing beneficial diversity on your own.

In this episode, the first part of a two-part series, you’ll hear from the director of the Dakota Lakes Research Farm near Pierre, S.D., on why crop rotations that are consistent in sequence or interval provide opportunity for those pesky problems. In our next episode, Dwayne will cover how you can create those rotations and provide some examples to consider.

Now is the time to choose the right cover crop species to improve YOUR no-till operation. “The Pluses and Minuses of Today’s Most Popular Cover Crops” report reveals how you can pick and utilize the cover crop species that are perfect for your farm, and it’s FREE!

In today’s No-Till Farmer podcast, brought to you by Montag Mfg., we welcome Dwayne Beck to share his experience with diversity and why it is so important to create it in your no-till operation.
