With the limited fieldwork completed last fall, many area farmers are trying to figure out how to manage residue left in the fields. If you’re already doing no-till this will not be as big of an issue. But if your farm uses conventional tillage you may be wondering how to be successful when planting this spring.
Bottom line, we don’t know what the next few months will hold. Spring may be warm and dry and lead to great conditions to work with or it could go the other way. The best thing you can do is work closely with your seed dealer and prepare as much as possible.
