No-till and strip-till dairy silage production - one of the few annual cropping sectors in CA that addresses the important soil health principle of preserving residues

September 12, 2010

Dairy silage fields under no-till and strip-till are some of the only annual cropping systems in California that address the important soil health principle of generating and preserving surface residues.  While most annual crop fields are without residues due to intensive tillage practices that essentially make them disappear completely, no-till and strip-till silage farmers are achieving this key soil care practice that is otherwise ignored in most fields in the state.
