Strip-tillers strive for healthy soil. But it takes more than a casual approach to keep the biological activity beneath the soil thriving and evolving.
Fortunately, there are interconnected steps strip-tillers can take to ensure the long-term health of their soil — from cover cropping, controlled traffic and proper drainage.
These are among the tenants Frank Gibbs, former USDA soil scientist and founder of Wetland and Soil Consulting Services in Rawson, Ohio, has been an advocate for during more than 40 years as an agronomist and soil health expert.
“Improving your soils takes a comprehensive approach,” he says. “It’s not one single thing which will do the job — it’s a combination of improvements functioning together.”
In today’s Strip-Till Farmer podcast, supported by Agrisolutions, Frank discusses how to create and maintain a collaborative biological environment within your soils to improve plant health.
