Strip-till provides the best of both worlds

Farmers like to tinker. They are constantly fine-tuning their production systems to get the most out of their ground and the most out of every ounce of fertilizer. The same goes for equipment. They will buy a perfectly good piece of equipment and before you know it they have taken it completely apart, tweaking the design so it fits their soil and their production system.

Rodney Thompson, Richmond, Mo., is guilty on both counts.
