One of the biggest challenges no-tillers face today is the tougher environment brought about by stalks that don’t decompose as quickly as they used to, as well as increasing corn-on-corn acres. A higher degree of fungicide use and the increase in Bt hybrids appear to be key factors in dealing with corn stalks, says Marion Calmer.
The Alpha, Ill., no-tiller will share residue management strategies starting at harvest-time all the way through to at-plant techniques the following spring. He’ll look at ways you can accelerate decomposition, particularly following a late harvest, as well as the pros and cons of various chopping heads and stalk roll options. You’ll learn what he finds to be an acceptable level of surface tillage in the fall, all in an effort to create a valuable mattress of residue instead of a mat.
