The fall of 2019 was a big topic during the DIRT Workshop this past week in Fargo. South Dakota State University Extension soils field specialist Anthony Bly says a lot of ruts were made in fields. “Producers were up against a wall and did what they had to do. Even a year ago, we had a lot of ruts in fields,” said Bly. “My message was just make the field trafficable. Just treat the ruts, don’t treat the whole field.” Bly also spoke about managing fertility in reduced tillage systems. “Managing for increased carbon activity is key for high productivity. Soil testing is also important.” Listen to the interview.
