What Should We Do Next Spring?

Since the beginning of wet cycle, in NE North Dakota producers are accustomed to chisel plowing in the fall and cultivate in spring before seeding. The main reason for doing that is to make the soils black so that they can absorb more heat and dry up quickly. However, due to a record breaking wet year, a lot of the producers have not been able to perform any tillage this fall. This gives rise to questions like, should we plant no-till, or cultivate only in spring or prevent plant? Workshop will address all of these questions.
