This campaign will help encourage farmers to do no fall tillage on their selected soybean ground acres and/or chisel their corn ground acres this coming fall. The farmers who will consid- er a change in management of- ten wonder, why should I want to change my tillage operation when my old way has worked for me for years?" When leav- ing the residue on the surface over winter it results in labor and fuel savings in the fall, soil moisture from trapped snow during the winter and reduced erosion during spring runoff. Farmers can carry these benefits through the growing season by making sure that a good percent of residue is left on the surface after planting. About a 30% residue cover should be left on the field after planting. There is also an increased awareness of society to accept the responsibil- ity to protect our natural re- sources. The Kimball FFA chapter is going out through the Tri-Coun- ty Area looking for pledges to participate in the program. You sign a contract agreeing to keep a 50% residue coverage on corn stubble and no tillage on soy- beans. You must also recognize that soybean and corn stubble land is exceptionally vulnerable to erosion and that reduced tillage and/or no till practices are effective and economical meth- ods of reducing soil loss. Conservation tillage not only means valuable benefits to the farmers, but it also means saving the soil for the future farmers which is tomorrow. If you would like to be a part of the Conservation Tillage pro- gram or would like more infor- mation, contact the Kimball FFA advisor Ruth Bredael- Kucharski at 398-7700 or any Kimball FFA member.
