In the pursuit of higher soil organic matter levels in their soils, Barry and Eli Little, a father-and-son team farming in Castlewood, S.D., are aggressively adopting regenerative practices.
Their aim is to create a highly functioning soil biology with the ability to support high yields on minimal inputs across their 1,800-acre corn and soybean operation.
In today’s Strip-Till Farmer podcast supported by The Andersons, we share excerpts from Editor Julia Gerlach’s recent conversation with Barry and Eli, discussing some of the detailed data-crunching that helps them improve soil health, reduce inputs and gain control of livestock feeding options.
Hear more from the Littles about how they are leveraging strip-till as a valuable systematic tool on their entire operation at the National Strip-Tillage Conference, Aug. 5-6 in Omaha, Neb.
