Integrating Crop Insurance, Government Programs, and Crop Marketing to Achieve Profitability

Integrating Crop Insurance, Government Programs, and Crop Marketing to Achieve Profitability

Farmers tend to focus on production, which is important but production alone won’t guarantee profitability. That’s why business-minded operators devote energy to the other sources of farm revenue — crop insurance and government programs — and integrate them with crop marketing to achieve farm profitability. Bryce Guse and Jared Clark with Silveus Financial explain.

Nutrient Management With Drip Irrigation 

Nutrient Management With Drip Irrigation 

Fertilizer and diesel prices are up considerably. Meanwhile farms are under increasing environmental pressure. These forces combine to create a real opportunity for manure utilization via drip irrigation. Drip irrigation, as we’ve discussed in previous episodes, is a more efficient means of delivering moisture to your crop. But drip is also a very effective means of nutrient management which saves time, machinery hours, and diesel all while eliminating the soil compaction common with manure application.

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.

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!
