These pictures are of a no till field split with a tilled field. It is heavy clay. The right side has been no till for about 13 years with one year after a few years getting a light cultivator pass in spring to dry it up. We finally have a couple dry years under our belts now and it doesnt appear that the no till will be better. Last year i do not think it was better either. I cant really see any benefit to no till now other than possibly saving a few bucks on tillage. When it was wet no till fell on its face and now when its dry its only on par. If i see a yeild drag this year i may just get off the notill band wagon. The year prior was canola with only a heavy harrow pass on both sides so essentially seeded into the same conditions. Any thoughts on why the difference? Or why im not seeing the benefit of no till?
