To make strip-till practical in the Valley, follow the combine with the strip-till machine. Fertilizer P and K can be applied, and wait until at least the 1st of October to apply fall ammonia, and only then when soil temperatures taken between 6-8AM fall to 50 degrees F.

If it becomes too wet to apply N in the fall, Plan B is necessary in the spring. If the season is favorable for N, apply in same tracks as strip-till unit. At least the strips are made. Waiting until the conditions are right for fall N to strip-till will result in success only in about half the years.
