One question that is always on the minds of farmers this time of year is what type of tillage is best for their farm. From no-till to strip-till, conventional and vertical-tillage options, Beck’s Practical Farm Research (PFR)® team has been evaluating all fall tillage methods to provide you with the necessary information to make the most informed decision for your farm.
As part of the crop rotation and tillage studies at Central IL PFR this year, we tested the new Incite™ 5000 from McFarlane Manufacturing Co. The Incite 5000 is being used as a “universal tillage” tool, allowing farmers to be more flexible with their fall tillage and achieve deeper depths than with traditional vertical tillage. You can read more about this study here.
In his latest report, PFR Innovation Lead Jason Webster highlights the benefits our team has been seeing when using this tillage tool on both corn and soybean residue this year. Check out the video below to learn more!
Beck's Hybrids PFR program conducts more than 75 different studies across multiple locations (500+ acres) to learn how different management practices and new technologies perform in field environments. Simply put, it is research focused with the farmer in mind. Click here
