What I've Learned From No-Tilling: Once a Naysayer, Agronomist is Now a No-Till Champion

Years of no-till experience enables Bud Smith to help no-tillers find the weakest link in their field, such as seed placement and nitrogen timing.
I'm not sure anyone has changed their stance on no-till more than me. As the agronomy manager of Caledonia Farmers Elevator in Michigan, the farmers I advised always looked to me for the solutions to their problems.

What I've Learned From No-Tilling: Always Learning More From No-Till And Strip-Till

How Can I Place My ‘N’ and ‘P’ Better in a No-Till System? - John Fulton - NNTC 2016 Presentation - MP3 Download

$19.95

With environmental policies influencing the timing and placement of fertilizers, it’s important to improve the application toolbox without sacrificing farm profitability. Placing nitrogen and phosphorus below the soil surface has been a suggested way to reduce off-site transport of nutrients, but at times, field capacity (ac/hr) may be sacrificed. Moving forward, the ability to both accurately place nutrients and apply them at the right time will be important for the no-till operation. In this presentation, John Fulton discusses opportunities for timing and placement of nitrogen and phosphorus, and how new technology can help enhance delivery. The Ohio State ag engineer also discusses environmental risks, agronomic response and application field capacity, as well as tips to consider for success.
