On this episode of Conservation Ag Update, brought to you by Martin-Till, no-tillers from across the world weigh in on the million-dollar question, “How do you control slugs?” 

In the Cover Crop Connection segment, associate editor Mackane Vogel pays a visit to no-tiller Jay Baxter for an up-close look at the impact cover crop mixes are having on his Georgetown, Del., farm. Plus, No-Till Living Legend and Conservation Ag Operator Fellow Ray McCormick shows how balansa clover, crimson clover and annual ryegrass paid off after 5 inches of rain in southern Indiana.

Also in the episode, Eagle, Wis., no-tiller Tyler Troiola explains why he's trying John Deere See & Spray Premium this summer and talks through the potential challenges the technology could face in a no-till, cover crop system.

Plus, the co-owners of John Deere dealer Eis Implement share some perspective on the latest no-till trends in their neck of the woods, and research associate Connor Sible provides an update on a biologicals and residue management study at the Univ. of Illinois!
