No-tillers know the value of root growth. Joel Gruver explains the science underlying crop root growth and function and the soil limitations that impact the hidden half of crop production.
The Western Illinois University soils specialist discusses the impact of surface and subsurface drainage, gypsum, nutrient banding, biological and chemical seed treatments, genetic selection for superior rooting, in-line ripping, bio-drilling of cover crops and earthworms on crop roots. Gruver gives real-farm examples of cropping systems with root-enhancing practices, as well as several novel practices.
