    That's low disturbance, not zero disturbance. Zero means not touched at all.
     
  2. 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.
    York-th.
