Safe working conditions for personnel and safe, healthful living conditions for animals are critical requirements in the design of all farmsteads.

All farmsteads periodically should be evaluated for potential hazards and conditions that could lead to injury, death, or premature building failure or loss. Some hazards develop with time and are easily overlooked. Others are the result of poor planning or just being "too busy." To assess the safety of your farmstead and buildings, answer the following questions. Any question that cannot be answered with a firm "yes" indicates a need for corrective action.

G92-1098 Cultivators For Conservation Tillage, Robert D. Grisso, Paul J. Jasa Jan 1992

G92-1098 Cultivators For Conservation Tillage, Robert D. Grisso, Paul J. Jasa

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Cultivating residue-covered fields and ridge-till considerations are among the topics covered here.

In any conventional, conservation or no-tillage planting system, crop cultivation can be an excellent method of weed control. Cultivators used in residue-covered fields must allow residue to flow through the implement without clogging.

Extra penetration force may be required to cultivate no-till fields as compared to tilled fields. While many high-clearance cultivators are designed to handle conservation tillage conditions, some older cultivators can be modified to work in residue-covered fields when residue flow and soil penetration are maintained.

Combining mechanical and chemical weed control is economical and effective ...
