2019 water runoff highlights downside of no-till farming practices, less wheat acres

After heavy rainfall amounts in 2019, one of the topics discussed among farmers is the significant number of ditches throughout the countryside that continue to worsen.

Not long ago, wheat was the predominant crop grown in this area. It was the foundation for a variety of crop rotations, and was planted on virtually every field at least once during each rotation.

Over the past several years, the number of acres planted to wheat has steadily declined, and with its decline has also come a new challenge. Wheat, a crop harvested early in the summer, allowed farmers to perform necessary maintenance to established conservation practices during the summer months. Ground conditions in the summer are generally best for this type of work. Maintenance could be performed before wheat was planted again in the fall, or another crop was planted the following spring.
