Your location, soil type, insect and disease pressure, and personal preference should influence your seed selection. We no-till all our corn here in southwestern IL. We have hilly clay ground we knife Anhydrous Ammonia in the fall if we can (we are on the southern border of the recommended dividing line in IL for fall NH3 application) or in the spring with mini-mole knives. We plant 112-116 day corn here at 32,000 population, we have no till coulters and martin row cleaners on the front of the row units and if it is damp we run martin spading closing wheels (13" on both sides) an it works well for us. I would love to cut our N and sidedress but with our butt-puckering hills and unreliable weather that time of year it just isn't for us. I had to sidedress about half the corn a few years back when we had a wet fall followed by a wet spring and by the time I finished I was wading through corn up to my chest, I still don't know how it went under the tractor without breaking off. Until then I had considered sidedressing the flatter ground but that broke me of that idea.
