Sometimes the best plan in strip-till is to plan for the unexpected. This is a philosophy Jerry Baysinger knows well after more than 20 years of strip-till. He strip-tills about 3,000 acres of corn and soybeans near Bruning, Neb., and was one of the first farmers to embrace strip-till in his area.
He also operates his own equipment dealership, JBI Enterprises, where he custom builds strip-till toolbars.
One key to his long-term success is adapting to whatever Mother Nature throws at him, and being able to adjust his strip-till operation to account for unpredictable weather and build berms in fall, winter or spring.
In today’s Strip-Till Farmer podcast brought to you by Topcon Agriculture, Jerry shares effective nutrient management techniques, seed placement strategies and residue clearing methods that have contributed to yield increases on his operation.
