The weather is gradually improving and most Iowa producers are getting closer to working in the field. Some have already started fieldwork. However, there is still time to finalize preparation of tillage implements for spring fieldwork. Producers are encouraged to check and evaluate the design of soil-engaging components of their tillage implements, assess the potential for soil erosion, and think about their chances for a successful crop.
