Jordan and Katie Hancock of Fulton, Ky., have made adjustments to their equipment and cropping rotation in attempts to protect and improve their soils and profits. To learn about their operation, see the article “Adjusting Equipment, Adding Crops Improves No-Till Operation” from the October 2015 issue.
Attica, Ind., no-tiller Dan DeSutter is always looking for ways to improve his cover-crop system. We visited him in the spring of 2016 when he was rolling/crimping his cover crops and planting soybeans.
To learn about DeSutter's operation, check out the What I've Learned from No-Tilling article: Rejuvenating Acres and Ramping Up Soil Productivity.
Gordon Stoner no-tills his 12,000 acres of durum, green field peas, lentils, flax and corn in Outlook, Mont. The 22-year no-till veteran moved from a wheat-fallow rotation to pulse crops and has seen his soils and bottom line both greatly improve.
