Southeast Research and Demonstration Farm
This project was designed to study the yield effects of a vertical tillage system as compared with conventional and no-till systems in corn. There has been increasing interest in vertical tillage systems in recent years, so the goal of this project was to compile information on these three systems. This study at the Southeast Research and Demonstration Farm in 2004 was a one-year project that was designed to provide preliminary information on these various tillage techniques with plans to conduct more thorough research in the future. This project focused on spring seedbed preparation practices. Subsequent research will focus on both fall and spring tillage practices.
