Reduced Tillage Farm Tour

Reduced Tillage Farm Tour

Grab dinner and a beverage at Empire Farm Days and then join us for a free tour of local farms to view reduced tillage crops and equipment and a comparison of production practices. The tour will start at Fred Jensen's Farm*. Whether you're already an established reduced tiller, thinking of trying it, or a relatively new adopter fine-tuning your reduced tilling, you'll learn a lot at this tour.

Reduced Tillage Tour plantings and equipment:
- Deep placement of ammonia preplant vs. liquid N applied at planting
- Strip tiller with N applicator configured from various components
- Strip till soybeans planted with and without auto guidance
- No till soybeans drilled vs. planted in 30 inch rows
- Crops in fields with effective tile vs. insufficient tile
- Auto steer on an articulated tractor, and auto guidance that failed
- Ammonia applied on a bias to corn planting

For more information about this event, contact Bill Verbeten of the NWNY Dairy, Livestock & Field Crops Team.

For more information on reduced till vegetables, contact Carol MacNeil.
