Heavy crop residue in cornfields has driven high interest in tillage equipment. Readers were particularly interested in the new tillage tool called RTS XT from Salford. The RTS XT (Residue Tillage Specialist Extreme) is considered vertical tillage with the benefits of a disk. It cuts and distributes crop residue while warming the soil for seeding. The tool with its coil-tech coulters runs at high speeds. It is available in widths from 12 to 50 ft.

List price of a 36-ft. XT is $83,998, including harrow kit. For more information, contact Salford, Dept. FIN, 925 Furnas Dr., Osceola, IA 50213, 866/442-1293, or visit www.salfordmachine.com.
