Yetter Strip Freshener makes spring strip-till a lot less stressful

"Spring strip-till has proven challenging for us in the past. We want to create an ideal seedbed just hours ahead of planting with no previous tillage.  Since we face the challenges of wet soil and increasing amounts of residue, we wanted a unit that was less restrictive of residue flow, lighter weight, and better suited for tilling at shallow depths.

"Now, with the Yetter Strip Freshener, spring strip-till is a lot less stressful. The ease of operation through our different soils, residue levels, and soil moisture is incredible.  The seedbed we create is ideal to plant into and we are very pleased with the even crop emergence."

The strips were still visible in the spring

For four years, Brent Schmitz tried to make strip-till work with little success. "We'd run the strips in the fall, but then in the spring, we could never see where we'd been."

Looking for a strip-till tool with a residue manager, Brent tried the Yetter 2984 Maverick™ HR Plus® with SharkTooth® wheels in the fall to strip-till in his bean stubble. He also applied anhydrous with the units. "The strips were still visible in the spring."

A test area proved the value of the Mavericks. "We didn't use the Mavericks on 12 rows—we got dramatically better emergence in the rest of the field than in these 12 rows that were straight no-till."

Key to the Mavericks' success, said Brent, is their "ability to seal in the nitrogen," which he attributes to the fact that there are so many adjustment options for the closers. "The depth, angle, pitch, and distance from the row are all adjustable. In a challenging year, those benefits are very important. The fall was wet, and the soil varied from field to field, but our strips were always well sealed—other farmers and custom applicators were having trouble."

Strip-till an asset in dry years

Paul Hamann has found that it pays to be creative when planting strip-till corn-on-corn. By constructing his own strip-till bar and fertilizer cart with his son and brother, he estimates he saved several thousand dollars.

By redesigning and shortening a used ridge-till cultivator bar, Paul was able to reduce the tool in weight and length for use on his small farm. He outfitted the bar with Yetter 2984 Maverick™ HR Plus® units, and then mounted the bar on a caddy he found in Nebraska. To complete the setup, he obtained a 12,000-pound Montag fertilizer cart, built a frame, and attached that to the caddy as well.

"We were worried that we would have to make modifications, but 1,000 acres later, it’s proven it actually works," said Paul.

Like many in southeastern Minnesota, Paul’s cattle graze in his corn stalks in the fall, so he does spring strip-tilling. The Mavericks help him get the job done in time. He also used the tool on soybeans, and even in his neighbors’ alfalfa field, building a berm and putting down fertilizer.  

"It’s a very good tool, and strip-till is a real asset in dry years," said Paul. "Residue and placement of the fertilizer is extremely crucial. We deposit fertilizer in the berm below the root zone, which enhances the roots and provides stimulus for the roots to go down to find the fertilizer and moisture. I’ve been able to see the difference between strip-tilled and non-strip-tilled fields."
