Kicking the tires on a new tractor or scheduling seasonal maintenance for a combine or planter are common necessities that keep farmers coming through the doors of their local farm equipment dealership.
But when it comes to strip-till equipment, farmers are often looking for a more unique level of expertise and support. As a niche farming practice, strip-till requires an intimate understanding of how different parts of the system correlate to an overall objective, whether it’s increasing yields, improving soil health, targeting fertilizer application — or all three.
Striking the right balance between equipment and inputs, to maximize the benefits of strip-till, is a constant work in progress. With so many moving parts (literally and figuratively), having a local resource who is knowledgeable on setting up and maintaining a strip-till system can be a luxury for farmers, while at the same time, an opportunity for dealers.
In today’s Strip-Till Farmer podcast brought to you by Topcon Agriculture, we welcome Matt Miller, who has first-hand experience strip-tilling and also supporting farm customers in the practice as an equipment technician at Butler Ag Equipment in Fremont, Neb. He shares tips and tactics to control variables and improve efficiency with strip-till equipment – front to back.
