Making a tillage management decision for 2003 starts now. The first decision is what tillage, if any, needs to be done after harvest. Because crop residue from harvest is still on top of the soil (and spread evenly from the combine), fall is the best time to move to a conservation tillage or no-till system. Whether you should convert to conservation tillage or no-till requires an understanding of conservation tillage and no-till options that are best for your specific field conditions and management requirements.
