PFR REPORT

Cover Crop Application Study

Published on Wednesday, November 02, 2016

Join members of the Beck's PFR and Agronomy team along with Jason Hinners of the Salford Group in the field in Colfax, IA. In this PFR report, we are looking at Beck's new Cover Crop Application Study involving the Salford Independent Series Vertical Tillage Tool with an attached cover crop seeder. 

Some of the benefits of cover crops include reduction of wind and water erosion, increased water and nutrient retention, and weed suppression. The Salford Independent Series Vertical Tillage Tool seeds cover crops in front of the machine and then uses the machine to work the seed into the ground. Check out the video to find out more about the PFR team's experience with this vertical tillage tool and if it might be right for your farm.
