In our last episode, we heard from Dwayne Beck, director of the Dakota Lakes Research Farm near Pierre, South Dakota, on why diversity is so important in a no-till system. Today we’re going to continue that conversation by discussing how growers can go about achieving that.
In today’s episode, Dwayne will cover why you can’t be consistent in either sequence or interval with your no-till rotation, how you can use rotation to break up weeds, diseases and pests, and some examples of simple and compound rotations, and the pros and cons of each.
In today’s No-Till Farmer podcast, brought to you by Montag Mfg., we welcome Dwayne Beck again to talk about how you can successfully break away from just a corn and soybean rotation.
