Does anybody harrow in the spring prior to seeding in a no till system?
The reason I ask is because I see other farmers doing it in the fall
And I can see a benefit to their crops by better emergence
But... Their fields didn't seem to catch the snow as a non harrowed field.
Since soil moisture is everything, doesn't it make sense to harrow after
The winter? Also could you use a light harrow doing it since it's been bio degrading all winter, which would cost less than heavy harrowing as well?
Any thoughts? Other pros or cons?
