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.
Erosion control and banded nutrient placement are a couple of the reasons New Prague, Minn., strip-tiller Greg Entinger adopted strip-till in 2015. He shares some of the economic objectives and measurable returns he's seen with reduced fuel usage, selling full-width tillage equipment and fertilizer cost savings.
