No-Till Farmer spoke with Needham Ag Technologies president Phil Needham and development representative Benjamin Needham at the 2019 National No-Tillage Conference in Indianapolis, Ind. The Needhams, whose company was a title sponsor of the event, talk about the new products they’re offering to support no-till farming.
There may be nothing worse for no-tillers than heading to the fields in the spring and being sidelined by a maintenance issue with their planter — especially if the window of opportunity to plant is tight and the breakdown could have been avoided.
With major rainfall events pelting many regions of the U.S. prior to and during the 2010 production season, field conditions were a big concern for no-tillers — not just in preparing fields for planting, but also no-tilling crops properly.
On this episode of Conservation Ag Update, brought to you by CultivAce, we talk to East Troy, Wis., no-tiller Jim Stute as he wraps up corn harvest. Stute reflects on a challenging year and shares how he was able to conserve moisture with cereal rye.
Needham Ag understands the role of technology in making better use of limited resources within a specific environment by drawing on a wealth of global experience to overcome the challenges facing today's farmers, manufacturers and dealers.
