Subtracting total costs, we see no-till had net revenues of $190.32 and conventional tillage had net revenues of $91.28/acre. Our no-till farmer was 52% more profitable than his conventional tilling peer. Another way to look at these numbers is to consider the cost per bushel of production.  It cost the no-till farmer $4.03 to produce one bushel of corn, and the conventional tiller $4.52 to produce a bushel.  That gives the no-tiller more of a cushion to remain profitable if prices drop.
