No-till planting/seeding in “hard, dry, and dusty” conditions

Good tips on no-till seeding in “hard, dry, and dusty” conditions from a 2012 Exapta Solutions newsletter. John Deere row crop planters, box drills, and air seeders are referenced, but the principles discussed could be applied to make/model of planter, drill, or air seeder. Main points are understanding how down pressure is applied to frame and row units and the importance of frequent ground truthing of seed depth (even with monitors that provide down-pressure readings).
