Since yall always have a wet spring, does anybody bed?
There is still some ridge till up here, where the ridges are formed during cultivation. Since most ridge till is done in 30" rows, ridge height is limited to about 6" which is enough to make a huge difference in a wet year. The elevated row area after planting sheds water better which prevents water from collecting in the row, reducing crusting.
