I was introduced to strip till in 1975. It worked pretty well, very well actually; but it didn't sell.
Almost every soil scientist on the planet is recommending strip till as the most economical, most environmentally friendly way to produce corn but only a handful of growers are actually putting strip till into practice.
What's the deal?
Corn seems to like it!
The soil seems to like it!
Do the scientists have it wrong?
Is the equipment wrong?
Why are all corn growers and even soybean growers not adopting strip till?
I look forward to tons of comment and advice.
Merry Christmas to all and all the very best of farming in 2017
Thanks Joe - I will do just that. Merry Christmas
Thanks for posting the question Jim.
I suggest that you also post it on our more active main Farmer Discussion website at
I suggest posting a similar question in the Commodity Market forum where there are thousands of farmers per day visiting....a large percentage are from Western Canada.
