Stripper Header and Direct Seeding: Ron and Andy Juris (Farmer-to-Farmer Case Study Series)
February 28, 2017
Ron and Andy Juris farm in Bickleton, Washington, an area that receives about 8-12 inches of annual precipitation. In this 2017 publication, the third- and fourth-generation cereal farmers discuss their use of a stripper header for conserving standing residue, as well as their use of direct seeding. Part of the Farmer-to-Farmer Case Study Project, which explores innovative approaches regional farmers are using to increase resilience amid climate change, testimony like the Juris' can help you to decide whether or not the techniques they've adopted in one of the driest wheat-producing regions in the world are a viable option for your operation.
