It is designed to familiarize viewers with systems that may be utilized to increase intensities of crops grown. These include research results from the Oklahoma panhandle that have shows increased yields and test weights due to no-till. Also research from North Central Oklahoma suggests that increasing cropping intensity reduces evaporative water loss when compared to the traditional continuous wheat. Furthermore the number of fallow days is altered not dramatically reduced. Finally the basics of no-till planting and fertility recommendations are discussed.
