Brian Ryberg started strip tilling sugar beets five years ago. He now raises corn, soybeans and sugar beets in 22-inch rows interseeded with cover crops on 5,200 acres. Without any hit on yields these new practices have cut several expensive field operations, lowered fuel and fertilizer costs and benefited soil conservation with increased live roots and residue on his fields over winter.
