What is strip-till?
Strip-till is a tillage system where soil is tilled ahead of planting. The strips are about one third the row width and 4 to 8 inches deep. Fertilizer is often incorporated at the same time. Seeds are planted directly into the strip of loosened soil.
What are the benefits of strip-till?
- Reduce water erosion
- Reduce wind erosion
- Improve soil organic matter content
- Allows for injecting nutrients directly into row areas
- Improved germination due to increased soil temperatures
