While questions about yield and other production factors were the main consideration for this project, there are logistical questions that were answered as well. Of main concern was the possibility of supplementing the original stand in the original strip-tilled seedbed. Observations from these trials indicate that this is possible, although great care needs to be taken when using the original strip. The original plants proved to be resilient, as they were able to remain viable even after being run over by the planter units during the replanting process. Growers would benefit from automated guidance when attempting to supplement belowoptimum initial stands within the original strip-tilled seedbed.
