No-tiller Loran Steinlage started his precise, dynamic interseeding system with an experiment of spreading cover crop seed by hand within growing cash crops. Now, his dynamic no-till system allows him to boost soil health without decreasing yields.
During a no-till classroom on Friday, Jan. 12 at the 2018 National No-Tillage Conference, Steinlage will share the benefits he’s derived from interseeding and companion cropping, along with the tool-bar and row-unit setups that he’s utilized in his 10-plus years of interseeding covers into corn and soybeans. He will also explain the results of various tests that were conducted and the increases in grain yields and soil organic matter he’s documented.
Co-located with the 3rd annual Precision Farming Dealer Summit, the 2018 conference will be held Jan. 9-12 at the Galt House in Louisville, Ky. The 26th annual conference offers 13 general sessions, 24 no-till classrooms and 80 no-till roundtables. Additional discussion topics include the impact of no-till practices on plant nutrition and yield, slowing the growth of herbicide resistance and tips from growers on successfully interseeding cover crops into cash crops. The 2018 program is available online.
