2023 Abstract - REDUCED TILLAGE DECREASES SOIL LOSSES AND INCREASES PROBABILITY OF PLANTING ON TIME. "EARLY": Research shows that reducing tillage can reduce soil losses. Preparing your seedbed in the fall will allow time for vegetative soil coverage (reducing soil loss) while allowing to have fields ready to plant when conditions are favorable. Drill-seeding, dry broadcasting, or water-seeding can initiate early planting as soon as weather will allow. Early planting usually results in higher yields, less insect and disease pressure, and better harvest weather.
