Residue management in a no till system

Good residue management is good for crops. The more stubble you retain, the more cover you have on your soil, and the more water your soils can retain. Wimmera agronomist and Vic No Till member Ben Cordes says “It’s about creating a bigger bucket.” Residue management starts at harvest time. The goal is to get even distribution of chaff and straw across the full width of your header front. Good residue management is the key to a no-till system.
