On-farm conservation: Strip-till and cover crops


Dan Sanderson and his son Trent farm near Clare, Ill. The operation is 100 percent strip-till, which not only saves in fuel costs, it saves their soil. They also plant cover crops on about 1/3 of their acres. Using a soybean plate and sugar beet plate, due to different seed sizes in the cover crop mixes, they seed radish at about 50,000 seeds per acre and winter peas at about 20 pounds per acre.

They use a variety of technologies when planting and spraying, including RTK and section control. Section control is used in planting, spraying and on their strip-till bar. The homemade bar is completely liquid, and applies nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium at prescribed rates on a per-field basis.
