Biostimulants are natural compounds used to enhance plant growth or increase resistance to abiotic stress.

Effect on Yield & Feed Quality

In a cooperator study conducted in Wisconsin, Kriss® biostimulant fertilizer statistically increased total dry matter yield versus untreated check by over 1,000 lb/A.

What is KRISS® biostimulant fertilizer?

  • Registered as a 5-8-4 NPK fertilizer

Focusing on Plant Nutrition at V5
After your corn crop gets to emergence and the weather conditions are cooperating, it develops rapidly, completing a growth stage approximately every three days. By the V5 stage, corn plants have put on significant root mass, making it an ideal time to focus on plant nutrition and stress reduction to maximize yields. Let’s take a look at 4 early-season management strategies to support your developing crop and maximize your return per acre.

Well, my snowmobiles, snow thrower, winter clothes, salt and shovels are all put away until they’re needed again in about 230 days. I know no one wants to think about next winter but our propane contracts will be mailed out in June. Once again, those who contracted last year came out money ahead as propane prices this past winter exceeded the contract price. I lock my propane price in every year because I know after 32 years in this business that propane prices typically increase during the winter months. You can almost set your watch by it.

As I write this the last week of April, we still have a couple of nights of sub-freezing temperatures to deal with, but that doesn’t seem to be slowing down our agronomy locations that are now entering their busiest time of the year. Long days and short nights can be the norm this time of year for our agronomy division and our producer members as they work to get this year’s crop in the ground. This is a great reminder to please pay special attention over the next couple of months to farm machinery pulling in and out of the fields and wide loads coming around the next corner or over the next hill. Whether you are in your car on your way to work, or in the tractor moving to the next field, never assume the other person sees you. Slow down and be extra careful. 

* Untreated check contained 3.2 fl oz/A Ascend® SL PGR + 1.2 fl oz/A Grizzly Too, Kriss® treatment was the same base with 16 fl oz/A Kriss® applied after the first and second cuttings.
