  I just love when a notiller brags about his perfect notill , to bad half his fertizler and manure washs into the river after a big rain picks it up and carrys it away, with it laying on top, no wonder our rivers and lakes are poluted, and all the chemicals being sprayed and insectides and fungicides, God help us , oh, forgot about the resistint weeds we are creating, can't beat good , common sense tillage , incorporate fertlizer , lest chemicals, better yields, good rotation, lest money for the chemical company's, cheaper seed costs,
