Shattering yield barriers is part of David Hula’s DNA. The Charles City, Va., farmer is known for his record-breaking corn yields, but the results are not based on repetition.
Rather, it’s David’s willingness to embrace change and accept the challenges of adopting a new farming philosophy. Starting in 2018, the long-time no-tiller began transitioning corn acres on his operation to strip-till, seeking more consistency in early emergence, targeted fertilizer placement and yield growth.
In today’s Strip-Till Farmer podcast, part 2, supported by Environmental Tillage Systems, David analyzes the operational challenges, economic gains and growth potential of transitioning to strip-tilled corn.
