What do you Know about the Rotary Hoe?

There are times, in my wanderings on the Internet, that I really do wonder — how did I miss this? Earlier this week, Dr. Tom Wolf, former Ag Canada researcher and current nozzle/spraying expert extraordinaire, alerted me to a certain three minute video featuring his colleague Steve Shirtliffe. Shirtliffe is a professor with the University of Saskatchewan, who, apparently, also makes fantastic videos.

While I wish I could say this is a RealAgriculture.com video…it is not. Instead, it’s just three very cool minutes of a rotary hoe in action. Shirtliffe covers when you can hoe crops, the roll this piece of equipment can play in managing herbicide resistance and why it’s still OK for even no-till or zero-till farmers. Enjoy.
