Has No-Till worked on ground that a chopping head was used on?

I was just out in our soybean 2020 fields. We have a 1790 planter that we plant soybeans with and it is set up for No-till. Past years No-Till has worked well but now that we have bought a chopping head corn head it seems we cannot get good seed to soil contact on the “mat” of corn residue left over by our chopping corn head. Thoughts?

Do you have furrow openers on your planter?
