Now that harvest is coming to a fast close, producers are thinking about fall tillage practices. I have seen quite a few cornfields that have already been chiseled. Fall tillage marks the beginning of disease management practices for 2001. Most disease management tactics are performed before the crop is planted, and include planning for rotation, tillage, and variety selection. The most immediate decision is whether fall tillage is appropriate for managing disease problems.
