Releasing Fertility Within Residue Through Biologicals 

Releasing Fertility Within Residue Through Biologicals 

On average — and at current fertilizer prices — there is $125 worth of N,P& K in each acre of corn stalks post harvest. Are you getting that fertility buck back for your next crop? As fertilizer prices skyrocket, it’s more important than ever to harvest nutrients already in your fields for your next harvest. Not to mention the importance of proper residue management — too much residue prevents solid seed-to-soil contact come next planting. Biological products such as Extract maximize nutrient release from residue while also breaking down that residue. Brian Cornelious and Steve Sexton from Agricen join XtremeAg farmer Kelly Garrett to discuss the results they’re seeing.

Using Stress Mitigation Technologies To Maximize Return

Using Stress Mitigation Technologies To Maximize Return

Limiting crop stress is Kelly Garrett’s priority heading into 2022. The theory being — if we have ample fertility, let’s make a healthier plant to utilize that fertility. Stress on crops comes from three areas: cold, drought, and salt. Combine those stressors over a growing season and the bushels lost to stress add up. So, what can you do to reduce crop stress? Kelly plans to apply AccomplishMax — Agricen’s newest in-furrow product for corn, soybeans, cotton, and wheat.

New Biologicals To Reduce Stress On Your Crops

New Biologicals To Reduce Stress On Your Crops

Marrone Bio is a 15 year old Agricultural company you’ve probably never heard of if you’re in the business of producing row crops. That’s because Marrone Bio’s roots are in products for horticulture and specialty crops. But that’s changing as the company is bringing innovative, abiotic stress reduction products to the marketplace. XtremeAg farmer Chad Henderson is trialing two Marrone products this year on 500 acres of corn and soybeans. Emergen (applied in-furrow) and Pacesetter (applied as a foliar at time of fungicide application), have one job: to reduce plant stress. Or, as Chad says, “they keep my crops from having a bad day.” And based on what he’s seeing on his farm, you’ll want to do the same.

Can you pump hog manure through a drip system?

Can you pump hog manure through a drip system?

Three years in the making, Kelly talks with Jim Ed Beach from Netafim and Kurt Grimm from Nutradrip about a new system they are working on that will allow hog farmers to utilize the naturally created waste products as fertilizer in a drip system. Based on the same premise that Netafim uses to run dairy cow effluent through drip systems, the system overcomes the barriers that had previously prevented swine effluent from being used in drip applications.

How To (Inexpensively!) Increase Your Combine’s Efficiency and Capture more Yield

How To (Inexpensively!) Increase Your Combine’s Efficiency and Capture more Yield

Inside your combine there are a LOT of moving parts and some of those parts — specifically your machine’s concaves — might not be pulling their weight. What if an inexpensive change got you through harvest 25% faster, or allowed you to increase the size of your combine head — without changing out your combine? What if your combine’s concaves are losing a bushel per acre out the rear end of the machine? Or worse yet, grinding and splitting your crop or allowing too much foreign matter to end up in the hopper? Chances are, you don’t think a lot about the belly of your machine but you should. Chad Henderson discusses the benefits he’s seen on his Alabama farm since making the simple switch to the XPR2 Concaves by Estes Performance Concaves.

Residue Management Through Biologicals 

Residue Management Through Biologicals 

With bigger corn crops come more stover in the field, which can prevent proper seed-to- soil contact following planting. Biologicals such as ResidueRX eliminate this problem, along with preventing disease, maximizing nutrient utilization, and saving you time and money by allowing you to apply during your pre-emergent spray pass. In this episode we discuss residue management to attain bigger yields — especially while reducing planting population.

Managing Personalities, Strengths & Weaknesses 

Managing Personalities, Strengths & Weaknesses 

When your farm operates as a "one man band” you wear every hat, but as your operation expands you quickly realize the need to prioritize responsibilities based personality, interest, or aptitude. Nobody can be an expert at everything. Generally, some of us love production, while others of us gravitate to the business side of farming. Stuart Sanderson of Henderson Farms explains how their operation divides responsibilities for a success and harmony. And, no, “harmony” doesn’t mean a lack of disagreement!
