Providing Roller Crimpers To The Midwest & Beyond

Roller crimping with early planted emerged soybean

Erin Silva, Organic and Sustainable Cropping Systems Specialist Department of Plant Pathology, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Advantages of planting soybean into boot stage rye, and then crimping 2-3 weeks later over the emerged soybean are demonstrated in the field. Experimental yield increased 8 bushel per acre for the early planted beans versus beans planted later after crimping at anthesis stage of the rye. Planting was easier at rye boot stage before crimping as well.

Advances using the roller-crimper for organic no-till in WI

This video demonstrates some basic components to integrate cover crop based no-till on Wisconsin farms, as well as some specific equipment modifications to make the technique more successful.  Interest in organic no-till production continues to grow, not only among organic farmers but also among conventional farmers wanting to integrate cover crops and alternative weed management strategies into their farming strategies.  

Using a roller-crimper for no-till organic soybeans

This organic no-till production technique uses fall-sown cover crops to suppress weeds the following production season.  Using a roller-crimper, the overwintering cover crop is terminated at the time of cash crop planting, leaving a thick mat of plant residue on the soil surface.  The cash crop is sown directly into the cover crop residue, allowing the cash crop to emerge through the terminated cover crop while suppressing weeds throughout the season.
