Tips to managing residue

At harvest:

--Process the residue with the cornhead.

--Leave 10 to 12 inches of the corn stalk standing at harvest.

--Control traffic in the field.

--Consider grazing corn stalks to reduce residue levels.

--Use cover crops.

At planting:

--Maintain sharp seed furrow openers.

--Avoid coulters that can cause air pockets in the seed zone.

--Don't hairpin residue; instead plant deeper.

--Consider residue movers in uneven residue coverage.

--Plant at the proper depth and in a uniform manner.

--Consider planter attachments rather than tillage to dry wet soils.
