Less Work — As Much Com A county-wide meeting on min¬ imum tillage will be held at the Huntley High School on Febru¬ ary 18 at 8 p.m. The meeting is jointly sponsored by the McHenry Count>' Agiicultural Ebrtension Service and the Adult Class at Huntley. Some Illinois farmers are main¬ taining maximum com yields even though they have reduced their growing and harvesting operations to no more than four trips over the field. Others follow more con- vcniential tillage systems but have eliminated two or more operations. Both groups are using the min¬ imum amonut o ftillage that will give quick germination, a high per cent of germination, and maxi¬ mum yields on their particular farm. Thus, miiiiumum tillage, rather than being any one given method, is really a pWnciple, which can be applied in many dif¬ ferent ways. The method you choose for your farm should be based on a com¬ bination of factors including soil type, climate, crop rotation, labor supply, and available machinery. Young Dems.
