Vertical tillage is any type of deep tillage that doesn’t create a horizontal layer. The main goal of vertical tillage is to break apart any crusts and soil compaction on the surface. Another advantage of this form of tillage is to cut and size residue. Using vertical tillage helps to aerate the soil, dry and warm soil, and prepare the field for planting. This method of tillage is also popular in minimum-till operations.
