Managing residue matters! As you make tillage plans for this spring and throughout the year, keep in mind the important role that crop residues play in your overall conservation plan. You have already made many choices for this year, starting with the amount of residue left on the ground during combining and after fall tillage last fall. But reducing tillage and leaving as much crop residue as possible in the field each season is good residue management and part of an effective conservation plan.
