    Strip-tillage corn moves the previous crop resiude off the corn row and incorporates soil within the seed zone. This warms and dries soil to improve corn planting conditions.

    No-till improves corn stands

    Tillage with a moldboard plow results in crusting soil conditions. No-till corn has near perfect plant population due to residue protected soil surface.

  5. Medium Red Clover Cover Crop
    Medium Red Clover Cover Crop

    In April, medium red clover can be frost-seeded into wheat or small grain crops. After the grain is harvested, medium red clover continues to grow and can overwinter. The soil benefits from the deep-rooting and the nitrogen production will help the next crops.

  6. Radish and winterpea planted together as cover crop
    Radish and Winterpea Planted Together as Cover Crop

    A splitter planter with 15-inch spacing was used to plant separate rows of oilseed radish and winterpea cover crops. The research showed better depth control and reduced cover crop seeding rates and improved growth of both cover crops resulting from a synergistic effect.

  7. Mixing three cover crops
    Mixing Three Cover Crops

    An effective soil-building cover crop is a mix with oilseed radish, crimson clover, and annual ryegrass. Compaction is reduced and soil tilth improved from the oilseed radish and annual ryegrass. Crimson clover provides nitrogen for crop production.
