Crop Residue Offers Sustainable, Global Solutions

02 September 2014

ANALYSIS - Farmers are finding that removing crop residue can improve their soil conditions and increase their yield, reports Sarah Mikesell live from the Farm Progress Show held in Boone, Iowa, USA

Glenn Farris, marketing manager with AGCO, talks about residue management in the US and South America. Farris said as yields increase, studies indicate that removal of a portion of corn stover helps create faster soil warming and drying in the spring and better seed placement and seed growth. As a result, residue management is a sustainable solution that can help farmers increase their yield.
