You guys that have gone to no-till how often do you deep rip your ground and what type of soil do you have? I am talking about corn ground

Brother has been no-till 30 plus years, all soil types. Has not ever deep ripped anything. His best results have been using cover crops. Google Ray Archuletta to know more, makes sense when he explains it..

Never, regardless of soil type. We do get about 3 feet of frost in the ground here though.Ben

32 seasons. No deep till, or till for that matter. Silt loam soils. We do have alfalfa in the rotation, which has deep (10 foot) tap roots.

Have no tilled corn for at least 30 years. I do a corn-soybean rotation. Try to deep rip as much bean stubble in the fall as possible. I use a five shank ripper pulled by a MX245. Run it as deep as possible at 5 mph. May give cover crops a try. Have a neighbor who does cover crops in the late summer using an airplane. He is very satisfied and has quit deep tillage.

In my neck of the woods, the only time no till corn ground sees anything, is when someone puts on gas fertilizer and knifes it in. Typically a corn soybean rotation. Some add wheat to the rotation.
