Young Farmer Goes from Delivering Pizzas to Strip-Tilling Corn

Wyandot County, Ohio, strip-tiller Brad Weaver had many jobs, from pizza delivery driver to trucker, before taking over as the owner and operator of Murphy Family Farms. The 34-year-old shares his journey with Ohio Ag Net and discusses his recent switch to strip-till. “We try to strip in the fall,” Weaver says. “It has worked well the couple years doing that with nice dry falls. In the strips, we will variable-rate our P and K. If it doesn’t get fit in the spring, we can plant right on top of that strip, but I like to come back in the spring and add some AMS and some micros in that same strip before we plant on it.”
