Meet Allen Williams, Gabe Brown and Neil Dennis. These ranchers now know how to regenerate their soils, while making their animals healthier and their operations more profitable. They are nurturing their soils, enabling rainwater to sink into the earth rather than run off. And these turned-on soils retain that water, so the ranches are much more resilient in drought.
Circleville, Ohio, no-tiller Ryan Wilson discusses the setup for the family's John Deere MaxEmerge no-till corn planter, which includes cast iron closing wheels, Martin row cleaners and Precision Planting's 20/20 AirForce system. They apply about 30 pounds per acre of nitrogen at planting to ensure corn seedlings have enough N after following the cereal rye cover crop.
