[Video] Intercropping & Companion Cropping in a Strip-Till System

Adding diversity in the field comes with multiple benefits and offers strip-tillers great flexibility and potential extra income, says Ty Fickenscher of Axtell, Neb. The owner of Upward Ag Systems says intercropping and companion cropping can not only improve soil health by boosting biological diversity, they can also boost the bottom line by providing additional cash crops and/or grazing opportunities.

Learn the ins and outs of growing more than one crop at a time in your strip-till system, including how to choose crops that will work well together, timing, row width and seeding rate considerations, fertilization, and harvest and termination options. Fickenscher also shares some pitfalls to look out for and mistakes to avoid.
