This past year, prevent plant acres soared to a new record of 20 million. What that number fails to account for are the acres that did get planted but maybe shouldn’t have, and what field conditions mean for 2020.
The moment soon approaches when we will mount up and do our thing in the fields. Only this year, our enthusiasm is somewhat dampened by the mental and agronomic scars from the harvest last fall. John Phipps explains.
The new cover crop seeder option provides economical one-pass planting and incorporation with the Rolling Harrow soil conditioner by itself, or combined with a lead tillage tool for enhanced residue sizing and tillage.
This spring, you’ll likely need to cope with ruts and wheel tracks and determine what kind of tillage, if any, is needed to work soil back into shape. It all depends on where, how deep and how many ruts there are.
