Here’s what farmers said were the top take-home lessons from our Feb. 11 event:

 

How to improve soil density and structure with a long-term fix for compaction

 

We’ll have to deal with compaction left from 2009 for several years

 

Coulter is for no-till

 

Have an N plan and how to use my N in different forms and application times for 2010

 

How much N needs to be down early

 

Microbes need ammonium and corn needs nitrate

 

Roots don’t grow to water or N they just grow

 

I knew I wanted to work residue behind the combine now I understand a lot more clearly why that’s so important
