John Deere reenters strip-till market

John Deere reenters strip-till market

A new strip-till equipment series by John Deere aims to increase farmer productivity and improve soil health.

Tillage Product Manager Steve Sporrer tells Brownfield strip-till has been shown to reduce input costs while maintaining yields.

“Allows us to have two-thirds of our field act as no-till and less than a third of our field operating as a tilled solution,” he said. “We have reduced erosion, we’re leaving more residue on the soil surface, and we’re helping build soil health by operating the strip-till bar.”

Sporrer says the new ST-Series has both drawn and integral models.
