Using the Crop Pro Gold Program throughout the season offers a huge advantage when it comes to breaking down the trash or crop residue left in the field after the harvest. By simply applying the Crop Pro Gold Soil Carbon Mix portion of the program after harvest, as directed, over the winter, the residue in the field will break down enough to basically disintegrate in the spring during tilling or discing. Burning of the crop residues is not needed, and planting into no-till ground is effortless.
