Strip Tillage for beet with a cover crop

DSC_2003Apart from just strip tilling stubbles ready for beet in the spring we are trying the option of planting a cover crop first then strip tilling through the cover crop as a second operation.  We are banking on the cover crop adding the soil stability in the strip tilled rows over the winter.
