Handle Heavy Residue
To cut residue in half – even bed-packed manure – I attached a no-till coulter to an old planter toolbar placed in front of my floating row cleaners. The row cleaners easily split trash to either side, leaving a clean, lightly tilled seedbed about 6 inches wide. And it won't pin residue in the seed trench.
