Equipment

Gisleson uses a Blue-Jet LandTracker multiple use implement caddy to pull a 1,000-gallon liquid fertilizer tank. Behind the caddy is a Remlinger Precision Strip Till (PST) 12-row, vertical-folding toolbar with 30-inch row spacing.

Fall Strips

Gisleson prefers to make strips in the fall after harvest into soybean stubble for the following year's corn. He says fall strip-till allows the seedbed to settle.

Fall strip-till into soybean stubble

It takes Gisleson about five days to strip-till 400 acres each fall.

Gisleson makes seven inch strips into soybean stubble.
