JimMitchell of Eaton, Ohio, lines up extra help to run his sprayer while he combines. The residue breakdown spray, including Residuce from AgriEnergy, hits stalks within a day behind the combine. Then the stalks are tilled in very lightly… the top few inches. One of the most common fall tillage operations now is the vertical disk. A few use vertical implements like the AerWay or CurseBuster. For farmers who seed fall cover crops, the drill does an adequate job of working a little dirt over cornstalk residue if it’s chopped first.
