Over a 40-year career studying no-till, Paul Jasa has become one of the best sources of information in the Midwest on no-till planting equipment setup and proper placement of seed in the soil.

Recognized this past year as one of the 25 Living Legends of No-Till and a past No-Till Innovator award recipient in the Research & Education category, the University of Nebraska Extension engineer is synonymous with the phrase “picket-fence stand.”

Today, we bring you Part 2 of a two-part podcast series with Paul Jasa, brought to you by Topcon Agriculture. We pick up on my recent interview with Paul, where he describes some of the specific actions no-tillers should consider in trying to achieve the perfect picket fence stand of corn.

The actions that Paul recommends in today’s episode are all about achieving uniformity of seedling emergence, which gives no-tillers the chance to achieve the highest yields possible. We now join Paul Jasa where he talks about factors for determining the ideal seeding depth.
