With spring planting in the rearview mirror, farmers and manufacturers are turning their attention to fall harvest to get a quality crop out of the ground and into the grain bin.
But with some farmers planting into less than ideal conditions, what should they account for in terms of potential compaction this fall? At the 2019 Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Ill., we caught up with several manufacturers and farmers to get their advice on how strip-tillers can remedy compaction problems and put their soils in the best shape for the following spring.
In today’s Strip-Till Farmer podcast, we share excerpts from my conversations and start with observations from Andy Thompson from Yetter Mfg., and Iowa strip-tiller Dave Nelson, on what conditions farmers and customers in their areas are expecting this fall.
