Please clear your calendar for the Total Tillage Solutions Field Day on September 4th 8 miles South of Madison Minnesota!
Have you ever wondered what your shanks, coulters and disks are doing to the soil after tilling? Wonder no more! We have created man-made soil pits that will show how the soil, fertilizer and residue are mixing and moving through the soil profile.
Participants will rotate to five 30 minute stations.
To close the day, a field demonstration of 7 different tillage implements will illustrate what you can expect to see in your fields. Feel free to talk to the local and regional reps and browse the informational booths.
Location: Scott County Fairgrounds in Jordan, MN
