South-central Nebraska producer John Kinley has a three-acre rainwater basin in a crop field. He talks about progressive practices such as no-till production and cover cropping.
Even though he farms through his wetland, no-till leaves the playa with cover year-round, and it now attracts ducks and geese as they migrate.
This episode of Playa Country is the second in a three-part series on soil health. It originally aired on High Plains Public Radio on Tuesday, March 25, 2014.
