Strip-tillage offers the advantage of no-till with the bonus of earlier planting dates. Strip-tilling fractures compacted soil, causing the soil to warm more quickly. And since strip-till does not wear down or dry out soil like conventional methods, it encourages natural organic matter to build up, boosting the rate of water infiltration and resulting in healthier, nutrient-rich soil. Strip-tilled fields absorb water much more quickly and retain it at a considerably higher rate.
