That's low disturbance, not zero disturbance. Zero means not touched at all.
Bit hard to plant any seeds then . . .
Personally, I'd say that WAS zero disturbance myself . . .
That one is on 250mm spacings.
Zero till, not zero disturbance, to me anyway.
Very much minimal disturbance, but not zero.
12 m looks very good value in comparison to a 6 m. 250 mm rows seems excessively wide. It’s seriously tempting though.
Lots of work done on wider spacing in US and Oz. All suggest as yield potential increases wider rows have a larger negative impact on yield. Albeit these yields are generally between 2 and 5 t / ha.
over here the organics did do research on row spacing.
soils: black soi. like Ukraine
as they wanted to do row mulching & weeding with harrows they used various row width.
Aiming for a yield potential of 10t/ha wheat there was no yield sacrifice up to a row spacing of 250mm. since Vaderstad with the Seed Hawk has proven in northern Germany that 10 t/ha is with 250mm spacing possible the topic of row spacing has lost it's big arguments.
