Tilling can be time-consuming, but a couple of innovative farmers from Oxford County have modified their equipment so they can reduce the number of passes they need to make on the land by as much as 50 percent. Their modified tiller can perform several operations when they plant their sweet corn under plastic mulch. The new system enables them to plant more corn in a shorter period of time, and will help them reach their goal of moving from 35 to 50 acres within the next two years.
