More interestingly for me however, is that you've been doing no-till... Our experience around here is that no-till works OK for a few years but then the soil loses too much humus and needs to be turned...

How many years have you skipped plowing? and what kind of soils do you have??and are they holding up OK???

Thanks for any replies on the subject... I know that is not what yousigned up for...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
