After nearly a quarter-century of strip-tilling a variety of crops, third-generation farmer Eric Wallendal and his wife, Megan, still view their Grand Marsh, Wis., operation as a work-in-progress. All of their strip-tilled acres are under center-pivot irrigation and in 2014, they spring strip-tilled 2,000 acres of soybeans, forage corn and snap beans.
The Wallendals will share how they’ve incorporated precision farming practices, including variable-rate irrigation and soil moisture probes to record organic matter, pH levels and water-holding capacity in their sandy topsoils, along with future use of drones, NDVI imagery data and variable-rate spreading/fertigation to boost strip-till productivity.
