While many farmers collect field data, it’s knowing what to do with it that will help them improve the productivity and efficiency of their strip-till operation.
This is something strip-tiller Trent Sanderson has made a priority to improve management of his family’s 2,000-acre corn, soybean and wheat operation near Clare, Illinois.
He has taken the lead on crunching and analyzing the numbers to assess return on investment and shape annual input expenditures. Before he even get into the field, he calibrates all of his equipment, including the yield monitor, to ensure accurate and useful collection of data.
In today’s Strip-Till Farmer podcast brought to you by Dawn Equipment, we welcome Trent to share his story on the best and easiest precision payback he has found to date on the farm and the real ROI of his strip-till system.
