Contour Strip Cropping 2013

Contour Strip Cropping 2013

Cut hay is in the foreground.  The light green strip middle left is oats.  The dark green strips above it are corn.  The light green at the top is a hay strip I baled a couple of weeks ago.

    I love the look of that. My father was the first farmer in hias area, back in the early fifties, to lay out, with assist from the Soil Conservation Service, contour strips on our gently sloping farm in southeastern Pennsylvania. In due time, it became the way to do things in those parts.
