CSD reader Alan Adams, Sandwich, Ill., captured this video during a 2-in. rain. One field had recently been tilled using conventional methods. The runoff is visibly extensive. The neighboring field had been strip-tilled, and basically absorbed the water. While there is visible water in the headlands, it isn't silt-filled like the water in the conventionally tilled field. He also included video of silt-laden runoff mixing with clear water coming out of a culvert. The whole video sure makes a case for conservation tillage!
