Increased earthworm populations, fertilizer and equipment savings are positives Minnesota farmer Tom Muller sees from nearly 20 years of continuous strip-till.
Muller farms a 2,600-acre family farm in Windom, Minn., no-tilling soybeans and strip-tilling corn, usually at a 50/50 split on acreage.
Running the two practices in tandem for many years provides an opportunity to see how they impact soil health and structure in the long term.
Muller says he’s at a point where they’re almost drought-proofing their soils.
