We caught up with Derek Allensworth of Yetter Farm Equipment and farmer Karl Gossel. Gossel moved to the United States roughly 30 years ago. After experimenting for years in the U.S. with various conservation tillage methods, he settled on strip-till. Yetter had a booth at Agritechnica 2015 and their presence at the show also gave them an opportunity to see the scope of strip-till and no-till in Europe and the rest of the world.
Looking to emphasize and expand conservation tillage practices in east-central Wisconsin, Brent Petersen, agronomist with Brown County Land & Water Conservation and Mike Pribyl, strip-tiller based in Green Bay, Wis., discuss their combined efforts educating local growers on the value of combining conservation practices and leveraging custom strip-till as an entry point.
