Vertical tillage implements being demonstrated in Kansas

K-State holds field day where vertical tillage is main topic.


On Monday, May 23, the K-State Southwest Kansas Research-Extension Center is hosting a spring field day, where vertical tillage equipment will be one of the main topics.

DeAnn Presley, extension specialist in K-State’s agronomy department, has invited all of the vertical tillage manufacturers to bring their implements to the field day and talk about them for a few minutes. You can get up to speed on these tools by reading our March cover story, which featured Presley. Our coverage also includes a photo gallery of vertical tillage implements along with specs and prices to help you compare your options.  

The field day will be held from 2 to 7 p.m., May 23, at the K-State SW Research-Extension Center, 4500 E. Mary St., Garden City, KS. Supper follows at 7 p.m. Ingersoll, manufacturer of tillage implement components for several companies, is sponsoring the event.

Presley, along with other KSU researchers including graduate student Tony Whitehair, are working on a research project that involves comparing a few models to no-till corn production. For more information about this research, contact Presley at 785/532-1218 or e-mail her at

I think they'd really like a robotic mouse, bird, snake or insect. I wish they just had those at Something that we can put some batteries in or charge up and let loose in our house that'll just run around. And it would be amazing if I could build them from Atoms.

You can get up to speed on these tools by reading March cover story. I have seen the photo gallery. It is pretty inspiring. The best things to look forward in the gallery are the technical specifications and price so that we can compare it with each other.
