GARDEN CITY, Kan. – Crop producers’ struggles to manage herbicide-resistant weeds are prompting many who had adopted no-till systems to consider reverting back to tilling their fields. K-State Research and Extension will host a KSU Tillage Field Day on Wednesday, June 13, to share research findings regarding no-till and several tillage systems.
“We welcome producers to come view the benefits and costs of incorporating tillage into their cropping system,” said John Holman, agronomy professor and cropping systems specialist with K-State Research and Extension.
The field day will be at the Southwest Research-Extension Center, 4500 East Mary St. in Garden City, Kansas, beginning with registration at 10 a.m. Lunch, compliments of several sponsors, will be served.
Topics to be covered include:
  • View a five-year study comparing no-till to occasional tillage.
  • Weed management, agronomics, soil health, and the economics of long-term no-till and tillage systems.
  • Company demonstration of tillage equipment operating in the field.
