New Math: Two Growers Share Equipment

 

Ron Miller, Towanda, IL, has reduced his fuel and equipment expense while upgrading  equipment. When estate sales reduced the size of his operation, he moved to sharing
A Deere 4720 sprayer and Deere 9770 across 3,500 acres with a partner. By also switching to strip-till corn and no-till beans, he went from three tractors to one newer model, and from 8 gal./acre to 2.5 gal./acre.
