no-till rotation systems for winter wheat production

                                                    
bullet.gif (870 bytes) Prinicpal Investigator:  Dr. Dwayne Beck
                  
bullet-2.gif (862 bytes) Objective:   Determination of the most profitable rotations for no-till production of winter wheat in central and western South Dakota
                                            
bullet.gif (870 bytes) Duration:   Present plans call for performing at least two rotation cycles (1991-2001)
                              
bullet-2.gif (862 bytes) Progress Report/Accomplishments:  The no-till rotation study is located on a half section of land approximately 17 miles southeast of Ft. Pierre on and Opal-Promise soil series.  Research procedures utilize field scale equipment, weigh wagon yields, and best management practices.

Fifteen no-till rotations are included in the study and 1997 yields are as follows.  Click on the corresponding number to view the crop inputs and machinery operations.
