    CASE 4890

    I had a Scania in a single axle Mack dump truck. What a gutless engine that thing was.

    Best thing to do with a barney knob

    Never heard them called Barney knobs either. Would be lost without one on the combine.

    No till questions

    Honestly has not been a problem. With that being said, the majority of our corn on corn acres is silage corn so residue is not an issue and our grain ground is corn/bean rotation and have been drilling majority of beans but do a fair share with corn planter and some grain corn on corn some years and have never had an issue with hair pinning. Had fixed row cleaners at one point in time and took them off as they wanted to trench and were constantly jamming up with small stones. I am sure the new clean sweep system would be nice but do not want the extra weight nor the price tag that comes with it. It is imperative that put all new openers every year however.

    No coulters or row cleaners on our planter, new blades every year, spiked closing wheels with drag chain. Totally tubular applying 30% with S in front of chains, pop-up 10-34-0 through the keetons. Kinze with no issues with trash or residue.

    Very few slug issues here but have had them on occasion and we are all conventional corn. We do apply liquid manure but not on all ground, only stuff close to home 200 bu corn in corn/bean rotation the stalks are gone by fall.

    No till questions

    We have been no-till for 11 years now, corn, beans, wheat and alfalfa. Generally spray your burndown in the spring pre-plant however if you have a lot of weed pressure it would not hurt to burndown this fall as well to keep things in control. Even better get a cover crop out there ASAP. As far as lime, spread in fall if possible and it will work itself into the soil profile with rain and snow. If you are serious about no-till do not plow anything. It takes 3-5 years to see the benefits of no-till and every time you work the ground you reset that clock. Cover crops are almost essential to making no-till a success. Feel free to contact me if you wish, lots of no till/cover crop experience, both good and bad and have tried lots of different things and still am fine tuning but got it mostly figured out after 11 years.
