Abstract:

The Center for Excellence was developed eight years ago. The primary purpose was to evaluate conservation tillage systems within a corn soybean system.

The Center was developed due to pressure from local producers to evaluate no till corn planted into soybean stubble in South east Michigan and north west Ohio. The number of acres of no-till corn was dropping across this area. No-till soybeans in corn stubble was on an increase.

Producers were complaining that the soil surface of the Morley and Blount clay loam soils were compacted on the surface, 4 to 6" deep and yield loss was occurring. The center set up replicated plots for a minimum of 5 years to see if there were any economic and scientific benefits of doing different tillage systems. We replicated yields, built density, organic matter in several tillage systems. These included no-till, strip-tillage, deep-tillage, fall chisel.

We are currently evaluating economic and scientific benefits of there same tillage systems in 4 different rotations. Continual corn silage, corn-soybean, corn-soybean wheat rotation and soybean wheat rotation. We also included adding Calcium Sulfate(Gypsum) into No-till system to see if surface infiltration and soils quality will improve in time by working with he Calcium / magnesium ratios.
