The 300-bushel threshold is one which many strip-tillers aim for, but few have consistently achieved. Limiting the barriers to harvesting high corn yields is an objective for Jeff Herrold with his brother, Paul, on Herrold Farms near Wanatah, Ind.
The brothers farm 2,300 acres of strip-tilled corn and no-tilled soybeans in the northwest corner of the state, with 75% of their 2,300-acre operation under center pivot irrigation.
Jeff admits they still have a lot to learn, but strip-tilling 250-bushel corn also doesn’t happen by accident. As he says, “We’ve been able to improve each year, adding tools like cover crops, leveraging collected field data to manage inputs and making some modifications to our planters that have all supported our strip-till operation.”
In today’s Strip-Till Farmer podcast brought to you by Topcon Agriculture, Jeff shares his experience-based tips and techniques for making applied nutrients work to achieve high-yielding strip-tilled corn.
