Greetings from the No-Till conference in Des Moines. I just listened to Fred Below talk about achieving 300 bushels. Unfortunately he has only done that once, back in 1985. From there he goes to show his current research using high tech products to try and reach those goals.
His recommended additions add an additional $125 to the cost of an acre and add between 14 and 66 bu/a.
My take away, high tech might be worth it, but if you don't have the basics right, your wasting you money. Fred echos this with you must to do better at the basic to hit high yields.
I will add to this in further blogs, got to catch the next session!
