Why Consider Strip-till Farming?
As producers look for ways to optimize profitability through tillage options, strip-till farming has been the go-to solution for many. The benefits of strip-till include aeration, or fluffs, that allow wet, poorly draining soils to dry faster in the spring. Quicker spring dry-out and residue removal of the planting area also helps increase soil temperatures earlier than no-till options.
One of the most appealing aspects of strip-tilling for producers is the potential for increased profits. Along with optimizing yield, strip-tilling can reduce expenses. Eliminating some of the primary and secondary tillage of traditional systems reduces fuel and labor costs while the ability to place nutrients exactly where needed reduces overlap and waste.
Since strip-tilling keeps crop residue in place over much of the soil, erosion is greatly reduced and water infiltration is increased. More organic matter is maintained and carbon dioxide is able to remain in the soil instead of escaping into the atmosphere.
