No-Till Requires Different Equipment, Management Skills

No-till seeding equipment must be able to handle wet soils, heavy residue and soils that have an existing structure built around intensive tillage to get uniform and vigorous stands, says Matt Hagny.

The no-till crop consultant from Salina, Kan., says growers must set aside both outdated equipment and traditional habits that were part of the long history of planting into tilled seedbeds.

Take Full Advantage of Nutrients in Manure

Jim Arnaud says his top cost-saving idea is fully capitalizing on the valuable nutrients in poultry manure. The veteran no-tiller from Monetta, Mo., says manure provides cheap fertilizer and also boosts soil health.

Since the poultry manure decomposes and continues to feed the no-tilled corn crop throughout the growing season, Arnaud can often avoid the expensive cost of sidedressing nitrogen.
