Great post.

Thanks for the spirit of “try something before saying it doesn’t work”.

I tried no-till 30 years ago with a B grain drill and JD 71 planters. It was a disaster. I have watched farmers in other area and read a lot here on Agtalk.

I have switched from full tillage to minimum tillage. I have not found a no-till method for planting pearl millet that works for me here. I do plant corn and soybeans no till using JD 7000 planters with coulters on the front. It maybe genetics, I don’t know for sure but my yields are improving. In the spring I can watch neighbors top soils blowing with the wind. Mine does not blow.

I do think no-till has its place. I think no-till has its place. I don’t think one size fits all.

Thank you for pointing out we all need to be flexible and learn on a daily basis.
