While strip-till is an established practice in some parts of North America, individual objectives can vary by farm. Some seek improved fertilizer placement, while others have soil health improvement goals or yield consistency.
But for Nathan Ensby and Trent Stainlay, both from New South Wales, Australia, a driving motivation for strip-till in their region is moisture retention and seedbed preparation.
In today’s Strip-Till Farmer podcast brought to you by Topcon Agriculture, we share excerpts from my conversation with Nathan and Trent at the 2019 National Strip-Tillage Conference on the scope of strip-till in Australia, along with some of the adoption hurdles and greatest opportunities for expansion.
