    Utilizing Strip Till in Continuous Corn Production in Central Iowa

    Authors: ,

Abstract

Markets driven by the emerging bio-economy are creating renewed interest in planting more corn following corn in recent years. When corn following corn is a part of a producers cropping plan in central Iowa, fall tillage is deemed necessary to reduce crop residue and expose soil for warming in the spring. This leaves the soil vulnerable to wind and water erosion until the growing crop establishes a canopy.
