Good News on the International Front – Strip-Tillage Makes Decent Gains!

Precision tillage in South Africa

South African grower strip-tilling and planting corn

After getting the summary of some of the yield data from South Africa for the trials we at Orthman participated in the Mpumalanga Province for 2012, our agronomic team organized a report for you to see that Strip-Till is doing well. The report is yes from the first seasons doing such comparisons with a more conventional tillage system and strip-till with the 1tRIPr. The folks over in the Highveld of Mpumalanga are enthusiastic and are sharing their results. As in so much of the Corn Belt of the States, South Africa felt the ugly effects of drought and consequently yields were down. Download a copy of the report here.
