Often overlooked because they don’t seem to directly impact the bottom line, waterways ought to be a primary point of concern for no-tillers, Marion Calmer says. The Alpha, Ill., no-tiller recognizes that just because you’re no-tilling doesn’t mean that you can’t have problems with soil erosion on your farm. In fact, he believes erosion in no-till waterways can be worse than conventionally tilled fields if not addressed properly.
Calmer will discuss the reasons why no-till waterways fail. He’ll share how they can be reshaped; the best way to prepare a no-till seedbed to stand up to water flow; seed mixtures that get you quick growth and stand up to future attacks; equipment needs and setups; and the best time of year to establish or repair waterways.
