Family considers new alfalfa variety's role in no-till rotation

By Jennifer M. Latzke

It all started with a flood.

In 2006 the remnants of Tropical Storm Erin dropped up to 20 inches of rain in four hours on Lyndon Jameson's alfalfa bottom ground--washing away topsoil and acres of established alfalfa stands.

"It was late August and we'd already had the ground worked up; back then we tilled everything," Jameson said. Jameson has raised alfalfa, wheat and cattle in the Geary, Okla., area for more than 30 years, tilling the soil just as his father and grandfather had done before him. "I am an old deep-tillage farmer," Jameson said. But the flood and the damage that was done to his fields caused him and his son-in-law Jeff Brower to re-think their tillage practices.
