Renewable Farming

Ways to get fall residue digestion started — bypassing pressures of your harvest rush

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.
