With the New Year just a few days away, it’s natural to reflect on the past year and what lies ahead.

What did you learn from strip-tilling this past year, and what do you want to accomplish in 2013?

For some, 2012 marked their first experience with strip-tilling. That was the case for Mark Schmidt of Hazelton, N.D., whose experiences are featured in this edition of Strip-Till Strategies.

Like many veteran strip-tillers, Schmidt sidedressed nitrogen on corn, but for the 2013 growing season, he wants to change how he sidedresses nitrogen. You’ll hear his reasons by reading the article below.

What did you learn while strip-tilling corn, soybeans, cotton, sugarbeets or other crops in 2012, and what do you want to know more about in 2013? Share what you learned, as well as what you want to hear about for 2013 in the commenst below.

With best wishes for a great New Year.
