Flaten on Continuous Cropping for Soil Health


Ever since we’ve farmed here in Highwood we’ve been continuous crop. We haven’t had any chem fallow or summer fallow at all.
It seems every year we’ve farmed here, you know we’ve gotten from what I can tell as good of yields on winter wheat you know, following pulses as others that have, that have it on chem fallow or on barley. So uh… plus we’ve been able to be
profitable on the pulse crops, too. So, I don’t know I mean I kind of see our continuous cropping as we get the rotation dialed in is less risk than the wheat-fallow rotation.
