No-till corn production has become an important agronomic practice in Kentucky. The amount of land in no-till corn has increased from one-third acre in 1962 to an estimated 320,000 acres in 1981. Since the technology necessary for no-till corn production varies from conventional techniques, widescale educational programs have been conducted to teach corn growers how and under what conditions to switch to no-till. The following discussion provides a general outline for no-till corn production.
