Address Early-On Issues With Technology

Jun 05, 2020

After the rush of spring planting, it can be hard to monitor every field for in-season problems such as poor stands, nutrient deficiencies, seedling diseases, early-season pests and weed pressure. There’s just not time to go back and perform manual scouting evaluations on every field it seems. Early detection of issues can make all the difference in yield potential at harvest. That’s where the R7® Field Monitoring Tool and NutriSolutions Tissue Testing can help.   

Maximizing Your Spray Investment

Jun 05, 2020

With post emergent herbicide applications upon us for corn and soybeans, it is important to put together the right tank mix so you can eliminate weed pressure before it impacts yield potential. While selecting the right herbicides and rates is always top of mind, don’t forget to include the right adjuvant package in your tank to ensure the active ingredients reach your intended target. Depending on the herbicides you choose, a water conditioner, surfactant and/or drift control agent might be required to prevent mixing problems and off target movement.

Herds & Overcrowding

Jun 03, 2020

Over the past 60 days I have heard rumblings of dairy farms selling cows in attempts to reduce their milk production, only to see their bulk tanks not budge an inch. As a nutritionist traveling the countryside, it is not often a question of “if” herds are overcrowding, but more so “how much.” There is a fine line between the two, and every herd’s line is different. If we want to ride closer to the overcrowding line, here are five steps that can help in successfully doing so.    

2020-2021 Propane Contracts

Jun 02, 2020

I hope you all are finding reasons to get outside and enjoy yourselves. We saw some great weather this spring. It’s amazing how quickly our farmer patrons were able to get their seeds in the ground this year compared to last year. In talking to a few farmers, some of them had their planting completed this year before they even started planting last year. Great job.
