It’s crucial for farmers to take advantage of all of the John Deere tillage technology made available to them. Whether it be primary or secondary tillage, matching the right tillage tool to the job can be challenging.

Tillage has come a long way since John Deere developed the first commercially successful, self-scouring steel plow in 1837. Today, farmers can conquer acres of land faster and more efficiently than ever before.

With all of this tillage equipment and technology made available to farmers, it has become increasingly more important to understand the right time and place to use it.
