Jodi DeJong-Hughes and Dr. Biegler (both of Univ.Minn) tell of Strip-Till Benefits

I have worked with Jodi DeJong-Hughes for sometime now (>10years) and I respect her and she carries a lot of weight in the Minnesota Extension Service with her educational prowess and passion to promote Conservation Tillage.  Jodi believes it, speaks on the subject very well, advocates all the tenets of Strip-Till and will ask you face to face “why don’t you do it?”  Please read the article that is attached by a hyperlink right here on Precision Tillage.com regarding some information she shared here a couple years back. Yes it is very pertinent today folks.  I have spoken at her Winter Conservation Tillage Workshop several times now and we at Orthman Mfg call her a good friend in the business.  The conference I refer to is every winter in cold, cold Minnesota.  Enjoy by clicking on the link below.

Jodi thoroughly likes to get down into the soil pit and describes what she sees and does it with flair.  Someone like the ole soils guy Mike Petersen who writes here and has been in over 1650 soil-root pits.  Two gophers for sure.
