No-Till Farmer is pleased to announce that University of Nebraska Extension Ag Engineer Paul Jasa will be returning to speak at the National No-Tillage Conference, January 8-11, 2019, in Indianapolis, Ind.
Jasa will lead a classroom session on Wednesday morning, “Tips for Better No-Till Planter Adjustments and Operation,” where he will help no-tillers develop a mindset to work through many variables with no-till planter setups, including proper adjustments to row units and the relationship between disc openers and operating depth. He will also point out pros and cons to planting down the old row vs. between old rows, how to use no-till soil structure to optimize proper planting depth, and the importance of weight distribution for the best planting results.
Jasa will also lead a general session on Thursday afternoon, “Get Better Results with a Systems Approach to No-Till and Soil Health,” during which he will discuss why no-tillers should aim for 100% continuous no-till systems to promote proper no-till soil structure and nutrient cycling and facilitate proper heating and cooling of farm ground for raising better crops. He’ll also cover the advantages of diversifying no-till rotations with wheat or forages and explain the benefits of controlling wheel traffic in fields.
