I watched some gabe browns seminars on youtube. Interesting. I never heard much of what his wheat or corn yields in comparison to his neighbours or the real numbers on margins. If I was his neighbour and he was putting way more money in his pocket than I was why wouldn't I be doing it ? He would certainly be willing to teach me how and give me insight but yet they don't ? Obviuosly not til has benefits, shade the soil conserve moisture and so on.... I'm just not there yet I guess. Maybe buy a 0 till drill and try. I'm not sold on cocktail crops either. If I spray down a hay field and miss a portion and seed through that spot the grass always overtakes the crop
From what i have heard. He makes more money telling people what to do than it actually corresponding to real dollars on his farm. I don't think he's outdoing any of his neighbors.
