Missouri Renegade Update

 

Finally got into the field with the 15’ RENEGADE VT on last week before it rained. My coworker Derek Porter was coming back from a Kansas delivery, and was able to stop to help me evaluate the job it was doing (which I thought was fantastic) and help make some adjustments.

                               

Here is the job that it is doing with the tines set at 5 degrees. This field was in corn last year and not had any tillage done last fall. Note that it does not bury the residue, while leaving the soil ready to plant into. The RENEGADE VT has penetrated 7+ inches for true vertical tillage. We are getting air into the soil, which was sealed over from all the snow and rain this past winter and spring. Any rain that comes now will soak in very nicely.

Keep checking back for more pictures and updates on how the RENEGADE VT is working this spring. We will also be posting videos on You Tube.

Missouri Update

Here is what has been going on in the state of Missouri the last few weeks. Lots of deliveries of all our liquid products, and finally the first delivery of a 15’ RENEGADE VT to Shelby County on April 12. So far because of weather conditions, we have not had a lot of field work going on across the northern part of the state. There has been some fertilizer applied, the wheat has been top dressed and sprayed. We applied 2 gallons per acre of 2075 SRN on our wheat last week with the herbicide. Not very much corn planted, though. That should change this week if the weather forecast holds true through Wednesday. By the way, did I mention that here in Jefferson City, MO, we had enough snow last week that all the grass was covered by 9 a.m.! All gone by 2 p.m., though.

Check back later this week and I will update on how the Renegade VT is doing this spring.
