Tillage recruited to deal with moisture issues

Necessity is the mother of invention, but weather appears to be the mother of necessity, these days. That seems to fit as producers talk about the need for tillage in this October Farmer Panel.

Largely in response to high residue levels, he says in some areas they are using a tandem disc and in others a vertical tillage tool.

“Tillage seems to be what a lot are looking at these days,” says Boles. “There is a bit of a craze going on to use some tillage. It’s all related to moisture in this area too. It was dry for many of the past 15 years, but since about 2010 we have had wetter seasons.” That contributed to excess moisture for seeding and harvest and big crops with plenty of residue.

Getting ready for spring

Posted by Flaman Agriculture Feb 29, 2016

We saw geese and blue birds this weekend - I guess spring is coming early.  And it doesn't look like flooding will be an issue - well unless we get a big dump of snow - and we may even be able to reclaim some land from the sloughs that grew over the past few years.  So it's time to get into the spring activities list and Flaman has a lot of good used equipment to fix everything.

We have 13 discs, 2 heavy harrows, and 2 rock diggers to reclaim that lost land.

We also have augers ranging from 8" to 13", from swing to stick, to well, you name it.  We have 18 used augers on hand, all in good working condition.  See http://www.flaman.com/clearance/listings.php?subCategoryID=30
