There is a common belief among many farmers and agronomists that tillage can accelerate residue breakdown. Likewise, there is the belief that the application of nitrogen fertilizer on crop residue after harvest can speed up the process of residue breakdown. Neither assertion is true, say researchers at Iowa State University.
Tall standing stubble, achieved by harvesting with a stripper header and leaving stumble at full-crop height, can conserve water and reduce residue decomposition rates in the Palouse region, says a new study by Washington State University Extension.

BASF Vice President of U.S. Crop Protection Scott Kay lead the discussion featuring farmers Dan Luepkes (Illinois) and Kelly Garrett (Iowa). The panel shared insights on using data and technology to maximize success in the field.
For more than a quarter of a century, the National No-Tillage Conference has been providing the practical tips and information you need to run a more successful no-till operation. In our 30th anniversary year, we’re ready to do it again as our event returns to beautiful downtown Louisville, Ky., at the legendary Galt House Hotel.
