Leave the soil and residue undisturbed, if possible. Residue disturbed in the fall by stalk shredding, knifmg-in fertilizer, or tillage deteriorates much fast- er than undistrubed residue. Standing residue can trap both blowing soil and snowfall, resul- tin in erosion reduction and an increase in moisture for the next crop. Winter: Limit cattle grazing to when the soil is dry or frozen to reduce compaction that could reduce yields or require addi- tional tillage. Carefully manage stocking rates and grazing period leng.ths to avoid removing excesswe amounts of residue. Spring: Measure percent resi- due cover before any field work starts to determine over-winter weathering, grazing l&es and residue levels existing before planting. Minimize soil and residue disturbance by evaluating each operation and by selecting less aggressive implements. For ex- ample, it may be possible to eliminate at least one tillage op- eraton, or to use a field cultiva- tor, rather than a disk, to leave more cover. Consider no-till planting to maximize residue cover remain- hag after planting.
