Event Description

Strip-till is often equated to a puzzle, with farmers having to assemble aspects of equipment, fertilizer application, technology, seed selection and soil health together. When one piece is missing, others don’t often fit.

But the challenge for strip-tillers is that the size, shape and availability of those pieces can change. Perhaps more than any other farming practice, strip-till requires a willingness to adapt, experiment and learn.

During this free, live webinar event, Jack Zemlicka, managing editor of Strip-Till Farmer, will share and evaluate the results of the 2018 benchmark study, based on the responses of more than 300 farmers from 27 states and Canada, to include 2017 cropping practices, fertilization strategies, cover cropping techniques, equipment setups and technology usage strip-tillers are putting to work on their operation.        

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • A demographic breakdown of strip-till corn and soybean acres, yields and seeding rates
  • A comparative analysis of the most popular equipment and precision setups being used in strip-till operations
  • How the top 10% of strip-tillers differentiate themselves in terms of yields, input efficiencies and experience
