Jon Stevens no-tills and strip-tills about 700 acres in Rock Creek, Minnesota, having moved from years of conventional tillage practices to no-till and strip-till starting in 2013.
Stevens embraces a systematic approach to building soil health while understanding that farm profitability isn't necessarily dependent upon having the highest yields.
For this episode of the Strip-Till Farmer podcast, Stevens talks about how integrating strip-till is helping him build organic matter and boost production on clay soils with relatively low county yield averages.
He also talks about diversifying his operation with cattle, building his own strip-till rig, controlling weeds with cover crop and more.
