The University of Nebraska Extension engineer Paul Jasa admits that if there is a mistake to be made with no-till, he's either made it himself or has seen it done. Most importantly, he has learned from those mistakes and shares that information with farmers, stressing a systems approach and the long-term benefits of continuous no-till.
Recognized this past year as one of the 25 Living Legends of No-Till, Paul Jasa has been honored as a No-Till Innovator in Research & Education through a storied career at the University of Nebraska.
In fact, he is synonymous with the phrase “picket-fence stand,” as Paul has studied the workings of no-till planters in placing seed accurately and properly and has researched how seed depth and uniformity of seed spacing is critical to even emergence of corn for the highest yield potential.
Today, we bring you Part 1 of a two-part podcast series with Paul Jasa, brought to you by Topcon Agriculture. We look back on my recent interview with Paul Jasa, where he not only talks how no-till seeding equipment has changed over the past 4 decades, but describes some of the tenets of a highly functioning continuous no-till system.
