Protect your Investment Down to the Last Drop

Reach your goal and crop potential with the right adjuvant.

This year, every farmer is facing tough input decisions. Adjuvants improve plant coverage and reduces drift, optimizing your herbicide, fungicide, insecticide and desiccant applications. So while you might pay a little more today, you’ll be looking at fewer weed escapes tomorrow. Here are a few adjuvant recommendations for the Enlist acre.

Class Act® NG® is an NIS and AMS water conditioner designed as an easy-to-use formulation that minimizes foaming. Class Act® NG® improves efficacy by three main functions:

  1. Reducing tie-up in the tank (Ammonium sulfate, AMS)
    • 2.5 gal/100 gal contains 8.5 lbs AMS
  2. Increases surface area (non-ionic surfactant, NIS)
    • 2.5 gal/100 gal contains 2-quart equivalent of NIS
  3. Increasing herbicide uptake (CornSorb®)
    • High Fructose CornSyrup (HFCS)
      • Increases humectancy/droplet sticking
    • Alkyl Polyglucosides (APG)
      • Increases uptake of cations
Fluorescent die shows differences of penetration of nutrient or active ingredient into plant cells for faster plant uptake with Class Act® NG®

CornSorb® technology that combines both high fructose corn syrup plus alkyl polyglucosides for increased nutrient or herbicide uptake.

Trials using full CornSorb® technology demonstrated 87.7% increase over untreated trials.

Interlock® drift and deposition aid helps reduce driftable fines and increases deposition of pesticide active ingredient onto pests.

Interlock® helps to maintain a more consistent droplet size spectrum and reduces the formation of smaller droplet sizes that are more susceptible to off-target movement as shown by the darker cloud of fine spray particles.

With spring just around the corner, your cooperative is gearing up for another one of our seasonal rushes…spring planting season. Not only will we see our total employee count peak for the year, but nearly every asset in the company will be in use. While many businesses have equipment and buildings that are in use all year long, our grain and agronomy divisions have millions of dollars invested in some assets that only get used for a few months out of the year. It is critical that these assets are fully operational and ready to go when the season starts. Our agronomy operations team has spent the winter months going through all the equipment to make sure it's in good working order, unwrapping and greasing up the new sprayers, trucks and other equipment we’ve purchased this year, updating technology and precision tools on existing equipment, and conducting hours of training on its use and safety. 

In addition, the crop advisors and admin staff have been putting the finishing touches on crop plans and seed orders, wrapping up input financing and nutrient management plans, hiring and training new staff including college interns to help scout fields, and maybe taking a little time away to get rested for what is sure to be long days and short nights ahead. If you’re still looking to finalize plans for this planting season, please don’t hesitate to reach out to one of our highly trained crop advisors.

Gearing up for spring is not only about the equipment, but also the additional staff needed to provide the products and services our members rely on to help feed the world. Each year we try to fill about 100 full and part time positions at our eleven agronomy locations. These positions can last from six weeks up to eight months. Most seasonal positions involve delivering product to our members or directly to fields to keep our custom application machines running smoothly. If you or someone you know is interested in seasonal or year-round employment, please contact Shayla at our Mt Horeb office or stop by one of the agronomy locations. The hours can be flexible and available up to seven days a week. If agronomy work isn’t for you, ask about openings at any of our other locations including retail associates, plant operations, truck drivers, administrative professionals and more. Premier is always looking to add quality people to our team.

Thank you for your continued support of Premier Cooperative and its staff. Have a great month and stay safe!

Cattle nutrient requirements can vary by season and stage of production. Now is a great time to evaluate your cattle mineral programs and map out a plan to maximize impact.

While minerals are a relatively small portion of the diet, they control many vital functions in cattle and impact everything from cattle reproduction to feed efficiency and overall herd health. That's why it’s so important to make sure the mineral needs of your cattle are being met year-round.

I know many of you have plans in place for a spring burndown herbicide application. If not, here are a few reasons for you to get in contact with your Premier agronomist to do so. Spring burndown applications typically target winter annuals and perennial grasses that overwinter and resume growing as soon as temperatures warm in the spring.  As they get going in the field they immediately begin stealing water and nutrients from the soil, and can create planting challenges. With the onset of resistant weeds like waterhemp, and standby challenges like giant ragweed, it is a best practice recommendation to add a strong residual herbicide to your preplant spring burndown application.  Doing so helps keep populations down and gets ahead of your first early post application. Here are some tips for establishing clean fields that give your crop a strong start.
