According to the results of the 8th annual Strip-Till Operational Benchmark study, nearly 75% of strip-tillers indicated they utilized RTK-level GPS correction, in line with last year’s survey. Last year was the first time the percentage dipped below 80% in 5 years. Another almost 20% of farmers indicated they relied on either GLONASS or WAAS for GPS and about 6% said they didn’t use any level of correction for strip-till.
