Build Stronger Plants from the Start

Roots are a plant's lifeline.

Roots are a plant’s lifeline for nutrient and water uptake. If your crops don’t have a strong root system, chances are your yield will suffer. Plant growth regulators (PGRs) are hormones that regulate growth and development of plants, and they can offer significant benefits, including a larger root mass with more root hairs. That can help the plant mine nonmobile soil nutrients including phosphorus, potassium and zinc for better plant health. PGRs can also promote vigorous emergence, wider leaves and thicker stalks. A PGR like Ascend Pro® delivers season-long crop benefits regardless of early-season conditions. Whether it’s cool and wet or hot and dry, research shows Ascend Pro® boosts plant health from day one.

Did you know that zinc deficiency can reduce corn yield by up to 40%? Although it’s only needed in small quantities, zinc is essential for production of the carbohydrates, proteins and chlorophyll that drive grain production. In fact, plant growth and development stops when specific zinc-dependent enzymes aren’t available. It’s easy to see why an in-furrow Ultra-Che Zinc application is a smart investment to promote early-season plant health and to protect yield potential.

We began distributing this year’s patronage and equity redemption checks with our May open house events in Mt Horeb, LaFarge, and Westby. With a little help from Mother Nature, we were lucky to have beautiful weather and an even better turnout for each open house. If you were not able to stop in to pick up your check this year, you should see it arrive in your mailbox by mid-June. Checks began getting mailed the last week of May and could take a couple of weeks to complete.

Crop management never ends if you want to protect the time and investments you have. As we head into mid-season of the crop calendar a fungicide application should be considered to help you protect and save yield loss if conditions are favorable.
