The group was keen to see how the garbanzo planting that they had helped with had turned out and also how the 2017 no-till sorghum is performing. Monte Bottens, Matt and Silas Rossow, and Cary Crum of CAS took part along with three other members of the Madera headquarters crew. The tour visit allowed everyone to view the rather dramatic and surprising growth of the no-till sorghum which seemed to be taller and more vigorous than this year's standard tillage systems.
In addition, the group also visited this year's trial of no-till cotton that was established in standing rye cover crop using row unit-mounted DAWN ZRX's. These implements roll standing cover crops and allow seeding all in the same operation.
Now is a very good time to visit the NRI Project field as there is much to see related to the performance of the no-till crops this season.
