Practice no-till more effectively with 'Focus on Corn' webcast

No-till is an increasingly popular practice in farming systems. It offers excellent erosion control, soil moisture conservation, and minimum fuel and labor costs.

Paul Jasa, author of the latest “Focus on Corn” webcast, titled “Residue, Uniformity, and Systems Approach,” helps consultants, producers, and other practitioners in the Corn Belt and High Plains manage their no-till crop production systems even more effectively.

No-till uses a systems approach where crops are grown with minimal soil disturbance and the soil is kept covered with crop residue to conserve soil and water. Residue management, crop rotation, nutrient management, integrated pest management, equipment and its proper operation, and many other cropping practices must be part of this systems approach. The presentation includes real-field examples to illustrate these points.

This two-part, 56-minute presentation is open access through May 31.

These and other Focus on Corn presentations can be viewed at

Webcasts on a variety of other crops can be found in PMN’s Education Center.
