Ryan Nell doesn’t like to get comfortable, especially when it comes to managing his family’s 2,200-acre farm operation in Beaver Dam, Wis. Comfortable can lead to complacency and for years FWR Farms was content to continue conventional tillage practices.

But in 2015, Ryan’s research into strip-till fueled their entry into the practice.

In today’s Strip-Till Farmer podcast supported by The Andersons, we share excerpts from a conversation with Ryan, who candidly shares some of the reasoning and results of the farm’s recent experiments with seeding cover crops after corn silage, using cereal rye to combat white mold, and ultra-low soybean populations.
