In this edition of the No-Till Farmer podcast series we share the story of grower Darren Grogan, who with his father Bobby and younger brother, Brian, no-tills 14,000 acres of corn, soybeans and wheat near Arlington in southwestern Kentucky.
Darren will share how no-till practices, strategic tiling and irrigation has helped the family get control over drainage issues on their silty, rolling farm ground so they can avoid “zero production” situations and get three crops in two years on a bigger percentage of their farm.
He'll also share how the family’s precision technology program allows them to variable-rate every nutrient and seed going into the ground, which has helped them improve nitrogen-use efficiency and increase yields economically on their 14,000-acre operation.
