Crunching the Numbers on Custom Strip-Till Opportunities & Advantages
An economic, efficient entry point into strip-till, or a lucrative business opportunity, custom strip-till can provide a pathway to profitability and Indiana farmer Jesse Stoller details the bankable benefits of the system at the 2020 National Strip-Tillage Conference.
While many farmers purchase and maintain their own strip-till rigs, some prefer an alternative investment in the practice. Custom strip-tilling is an emerging business in parts of the U.S., and can be a cost-effective option for new strip-tillers to get started with the practice.
Count Kentland, Ind., custom operator Jesse Stoller among those who is seeing measurable return on his investment in custom strip-tilling, with increasing interest among farmers looking into alternative tillage practices to widen planting windows and compensate for cool, damp field conditions.
The Stoller family started strip-tilling in 2014 on their 4,000-acre operation and in 2020 Stoller will custom strip-till about 10,000 acres, advising customers on nutrient placement, precision technology application and berm building.
During a classroom session at the 2020 National Strip-Tillage Conference, Aug. 6-7 in Omaha, Neb., Stoller will breakdown the structure of his custom strip-tilling operation, to include pricing and payback, along with entry-point advice and tips for test driving the practice.
