From a cool, cloudy morning to hot and muggy afternoon the Strip-Till System Educational Seminar and field trials can help irrigated growers improve their bottomline. The on-going GPS guided corn research with Orthman/Monsanto/IRF and John Deere is making some dramatic points to seeing how strip-till and fertilizer placement has their irrigated field sized plots hummin’. Today the Farm Show had much of the field items directly involved with the Strip-Till and Limited water study. There were about 195 people listening to the program offered by Deere crop systems specialist, Yancy Wright from Hayes, KS, Jeff Tichota, TDM for Monsanto from Centennial, CO and Mike Petersen, with Orthman Agronomist from Greeley, CO all pitched in to put on a show and set of talks.
