On this episode of Conservation Ag Update, brought to you by Montag Manufacturing, growers from across the U.S. share their predictions for the upcoming planting season, including one no-tiller who’s “bullish” about a great spring. 

In the Farmer Feature, No-Till Living Legend Jeff Martin, who’s been no-tilling and strip-tilling for decades in Mount Pulaski, Ill., reflects on the eye-opening moment that forever changed his farming philosophy.

Also in the episode, No-Till Farmer associate editor Mackane Vogel checks in with no-till insights from the Conservation Tillage and Technology Conference at Ohio Northern University. Plus, a precision specialist uses an autonomy kit to plant cover crops, and an equipment expert shares a few tips for growers to keep in mind before taking the field this spring.

It can be mounted to tillage implements, combines and self-propelled high clearance machines.
