Why Consider No-till Farming?
As the name implies, no-till farming leaves your fields’ soil undisturbed, avoiding the practice of tilling. No-till farming is becoming an increasingly popular practice among farmers looking to reduce costs and improve soil structure, although it takes time to reap the benefits. Keeping crop residue on the surface of the field in non-growing months is a foreign idea to some but can benefit the health of the field and the environment.
No-till farming eliminates the disruption of soil structure and the release of carbon caused by tilling, and can reduce erosion by allowing rain and melted snow to filter into the soil rather than causing runoff. This farming practice also reduces the amount of heavy equipment in the field, leading to reduced soil compaction. Specialized equipment such as ProTrakker can ensure you’re effective with planting in no-till applications.
No-Till Tractor Guidance
ProTrakker Implement Guidance Systems can ensure the accuracy and precision of your no-till farming equipment, reducing variability in guess rows and limiting crop damage that may occur during traditional tillage/cultivation. ProTrakker eliminates planting difficulties that may arise in no-till farming by precisely placing seed and further saves you costs by eliminating fertilizer, seed, and chemical overlap. A hydraulic hitch from ProTrakker is a powerful piece of hardware to add to your operation’s no-till farming equipment toolset.
