On this episode of Conservation Ag Update, brought to you by Montag Manufacturing, no-till legend and 2024 National No-Tillage Conference speaker Paul Jasa explains why a diverse rotation is a key part of his systems approach to no-till.

In the Farmer Feature segment, we go inside the cab with Elkhorn, Wis., grower Adam Friemoth, as he custom combines a no-tiller’s corn crop. Friemoth talks about how his conventionally tilled soybeans compared to no-till soybeans that he harvested in 2023 and shares tips for harvesting corn and maximizing the combine’s fuel efficiency.

We visit with Brandon, Minnesota, no-tiller John Ledermann in the Cover Crop Connection. Lederman showcases his unique strategy for planting cereal rye and corn.

Plus, strip-tiller David Hula reflects on his record-breaking 623-bushel corn yield, Sentinel Fertigation founder Jackson Stansell shows how N-Time is saving growers an average of 42 pounds of nitrogen per acre, and a grower from Idaho grazes 800 goats on 195 acres of cover crops.
