Ohio farmer David Brandt switched to no-till on his corn, wheat, and soybean operation in 1971 and started experimenting with cover crops in 1979. He has stated, “The quality of our soils and our reduced inputs show up on our balance sheets”.
Kansas Star Seed Agronomist Dale Strickler started cover cropping on rented ground in 1988. He bought his first farm in 2000 and converted it from a furrow-irrigated corn farm to a subsurface drip irrigated, management intensive grazing operation. Cover cropping has become an integral part of his operation, and that of many of the farmers he works with.
