You can’t improve on things you don’t measure or research. That mentality is what drove Marion Calmer to set up his own test plots to determine what works — and what doesn’t — on his no-till operation.

In today’s episode, which comes from the 2017 National No-Tillage Conference, Marion will discuss the results from the many years of on-farm research he’s conducted on his farm in Alpha, Ill., including populations, row spacing, fertility, and residue management, and how that information has provided him a $150-per-acre return on investment.

In today’s No-Till Farmer podcast, brought to you by Copperhead Ag, we welcome Marion to share the lessons he’s learned and the improvements he’s made, thanks to on-farm research.
