No-till doesn’t just mean putting the plow away — it’s really about a systems approach to farm management that starts by understanding the importance of avoiding soil disturbance and managing residue properly to optimize soil biological activity and get residue working better for you, says Paul Jasa.
The ag engineer at University of Nebraska Extension 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.
