Jim Leverich has five management practices he says are key to achieving high yields in his no-till system, and two of them involve fertility.
In this presentation from the 2017 National No-Tillage Conference, Jim, a no-tiller and on-farm research coordinator for the University of Wisconsin, talked about the things no-tillers should consider when creating an effective nutrient management program for their operation, including soil testing, on-farm research, choosing a fertilizer source and application methods.
In today’s No-Till Farmer podcast, brought to you by Montag Manufacturing, we welcome Jim to discuss how he’s developed an efficient fertility system for his no-till operation, and what he recommends other no-tillers do to build their own.
