Abstract: A firm level simulation model (FLIPSIM V) was used to test the financial performance of alternative tillage practices over a 10-year planning horizon. Switching to an exclusive no-till procedure from a combination minimum- and no-till procedure was found to increase the farmer's cash flow in the intermediate (5 to 10-year) term.
