Video report of one-pass no-tillage cotton seeding and cover crop rolling in Five Points, CA 2017

A short video summary on something new this year down in Five Points, - https://youtu.be/dF_BhYv-VtI - our use and application of the DAWN ZRX row unit-mounted cover crop rollers (http://www.dawnbiologic.com/zrx/) ahead of a John Deere 1730 no-tillage planter for circle-planted cotton down here in Five Points. 

Things were delayed due to the very late arrival of the DAWNs, but we ended up getting a decent stand of plants and are now going through the remainder of the season to see how things turn out. 

As some of you know, these sorts of approaches are far more common in other regions, but as far as I know, this is the first time they've been attempted here in the San Joaquin Valley.
