Jon Stevens is a no-till and strip-till farmer in Rock Creek, Minn. In this video he talks about his first no-till experiences with equipment changes, planting strategies, weed control measures, trial-and-error and overcoming challenges. Because of a shortened growing season, he is currently experimenting with interseeding cover crops, using clovers, ryegrass, vetch and oats. He is also bringing alfalfa back into a corn/soybean rotation on his 450 acres. He’s now using a homemade strip-till bar, two John Deere tractors and a White 9222 planter.
