Future proofing your farm with strip tillage

12 Jun 2019

Ben Knight, Farm manager of Springfield Farms, talks about how strip tillage could be the answer for future proofing arable enterprises as we move forward into uncertain times. Sharing his challenges and recent developments as a Mzuri trial farm, Ben will explain how strip tillage has facilitated improved weed control and reduced dependency on chemistry, whilst cutting expenditure and improving soil structure thanks to single pass establishment. Having converted to a strip tillage system eight years ago, Springfield Farm has gone from being unproductive business, which was haunted by a heavy weed burden and rising costs, to a sustainable and efficient enterprise.
