We also farm extremely heavy unforgiving clay, nearly always too wet. Switched to no till during the extreme wet springs, since any tillage we tried to do just caused so much compaction it was a losing battle. There is a very noticeable drag on getting the crop above the stubble and looking even, but not sure it translates into anything by fall. In the extreme wet or dry years it is a definite benefit, the just right years probably a detriment.
