some of the On-going research advancing strip-till technology
- Replicated Comparison study of natural rain-fed Strip-Till versus Direct Seeded crops involved: corn and soybeans to evaluate longevity of the positive effects of strip-tillage with use of constant reading cone penetrometer readings. Measurements of early stand (population, seedling vigor) then taken all the way to yield.
- Fertilizer placement in the strip zone is another segment of this study with dry fertilizers courtesy of Orthman Mfg. and Salford Mfg. This is compared to a common practiced broadcast fertilizer program. Crop is corn for the 2018 year.
