On this episode of Conservation Ag Update, brought to you by CultivAce, we talk to East Troy, Wis., no-tiller Jim Stute as he wraps up corn harvest. Stute reflects on a challenging year and shares how he was able to conserve moisture with cereal rye.

Plus, James Crouch, National Segment Manager for Yokohama Off-Highway Tires, says now is the perfect time to check your ag tires. The self-proclaimed “tire nerd” explains what to look for when doing an inspection, and why it’s important to make sure your tires aren’t overinflated.

In the Cover Crop Connection, assistant editor Mackane Vogel takes us inside a field day at the University of Wisconsin, where weed scientist Rodrigo Werle examines how much cereal rye biomass is needed for optimal weed suppression.

In the Farmer Feature segment, New Prague, Minn., grower Greg Entinger shares how he slashed his fertilizer costs by 50% after switching from conventional tillage to strip-till. Also in the episode, Canadian-based ag tech startup Lucent BioSciences unveils a new micronutrient fertilizer for corn and soybeans, and a South African no-tiller grows a tillage radish that’s almost as big as him!
