Strip-tillers often talk about the need to be more sensible with their seed placement and planter setups to create an increasingly responsive environment for initial plant growth.
But how are farmers turning those several inches of optimal planting space into higher yields and lower seed costs? Hitting — or missing — that target planting zone can be the difference between a bumper crop and disappointing yields.
At this year’s National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, we had the opportunity to talk with a diverse mix of manufacturers and farmers about their priorities ahead of planting into strip-tilled field.
In today’s Strip-Till Farmer podcast brought to you by Topcon Agriculture, we share excerpts from those conversations, with insight and advice on how prepare equipment and technology to capture the highest strip-till yield potential prior to planting.
