Lowpoint, Ill., farmer Todd Mooberry understands that every field is different and one size doesn’t fit all with strip-till.
He began strip-tilling corn in 2001 on his 1,800-acre operation, seeking ways to better adapt the practice to the variable soil types and slopes on his farm. Todd designed several products to improve strip-till efficiency, including a strip-freshener attachment in 2011 to run through soybean stubble in spring as an alternative to no-till.
After seeing interest in his creation from other strip-tillers who endured planting struggles due to damp springs, he improved the design, built and patented a new individual strip-refresher row unit.
In today’s Strip-Till Farmer podcast brought to you by Topcon Agriculture, Todd offers some tips and equipment strategies to help minimize erosion concerns on rolling ground, better time fertilizer application and utilize cover crops in strip-till.
