Report on strip-till trial for seed crops

July 2021

This experiment aimed to investigate if the seed yield of radish can be maintained through the use of strip tillage compared with full cultivation. Radish seed crops were established in 50 cm row spacings, assuming 10 cm is required to create a fit for purpose seedbed, 80% of the soil could potentially be left undisturbed.

There was no difference in radish seed yield (935 kg/ha) between strip till and full cultivation when sown during the spring of 2020. Initial radish growth in the strip till was slower than full cultivation with the radish being slightly shorter and with fewer flowering branches by 24 December.
