Don’t tell your seed sales representative but...triple stack corn isn’t doing the job it once did. If you’re paying a premium for seed traits that aren’t giving you much return, it’s time to change your strategy. That’s what Iowa producer Kelly Garrett is doing — switching to more conventional (and less expensive!) seed corn while opting for in-furrow yield enhancement instead. Last year’s trial netted Mr. Garrett $100 more per acre using Ethos — an insecticide containing a biological fungicide.

Lee Lubbers of Lubbers Farms in Gregory, South Dakota was a no-till pioneer. In fact, he and his brother attempted to purchase no-till planting equipment back when it was so unpopular, the John Deere dealer refused to order it in for them! The farmers began no-tilling in the 1980s out of necessity — lack of labor, lack of money, lack of equipment. They also looked at it as a way to better utilize their farm land resource — leaving land fallow for a season to gain moisture was common at the time, and they needed a crop every year. Today Lubbers’ entire 17,000 acre operation is no-till. How do they do it, what are the benefits and pitfalls, and what do you need to know to succeed while avoiding tillage? Find out in this episode!
