In this PFR report, Jason Webster, Beck’s Practical Farm Research Innovation Lead is at the Central IL PFR Site looking at the different tillage methods used where continuous corn is grown each year.
One of the newest tillage methods being tested at the Central IL PFR Site in Downs, IL is Moldboard plowing. Beck’s has not utilized this tillage form in the past, but with enough growers requesting it, the Moldboard Plow was officially added to our tillage research in 2015!
Can it handle some of the residue and break up the carbon penalty associated with continuous corn? Watch the video to find out!
