Examination of Zone Tillage versus Conventional Tillage

Ron Anderson BWT Farms LLLP

BWT this year will be looking at the how “zone tillage” with a 3 coulter cart will affect the soils ability to infiltrate water and reduce surface run off while in a corn on corn situation versus the current SOP of tillage on corn. BWT will be soil sampling and tissue testing both systems to discover any differences. Water samples to be drawn from tile outlets from each system.
