The XtremeAg team put the Estes XPR2 Concaves to the test this season. The results were pretty impressive across the board. Kevin shares the comparison results for Barley, Wheat, Corn and Soybeans versus the standard OEM on his S680.
Chad is joined by TriGreen Equipment's Shannon Norwood to discuss an important update to the John Deere StarFire™ system. A mandatory update to the 6000 and 3000 systems will be needed beginning February 1, 2021, to avoid service interruption.
It's the XtremeAg.farm member webinar where the team unveils results from various trials, discusses key learnings and insights from the 2020 season. Topics discussed include, foliar and starter fertilizer trials, population research, soybean desiccation, late season nitrogen applications, seed selection, tillage, fungicide, biologicals, boron, sulfur, fertility, and much more.
Dan is waiting for the grain cart so he is out of the combine taking a look at one of his favorite aftermarket attachments, the Stalk Devastator. Great job shredding the stalks and a great ROI for his combine. But, guess what he loves most about them?
You can learn a lot from a row of corn. In this case, Dan is down to one of his last rows of corn and he is noticing some dramatic differences in the growth patterns of the plants in a single row of corn. Dan takes stops combining for a minute to share his thoughts on the reason for the non-uniform growth.
Kelly takes the Geringhoff 15-inch corn head to the scene of the derecho crime to see if it performs as promised. He's not winning any races running at 1.2 mph, but if it helps him get the most out of this downed corn then it is well worth it.
Kelly Garrett saved the worst for last this harvest season but now he is about to face the devastation caused by the derecho in August as he prepares to combine the acres of corn that were flattened by the high winds and hail that came with the freak storm.
Chad Henderson farms a lot of land in north Alabama and Georgia. So if he can run at the same speeds with a 16 row head that he can with his 12-row, then that means he will get back home a lot faster. Chad ran some tests on the XPR2 concaves and he shares the results.
Kelly has been focusing on driving higher corn yields every year and it has paid off in both ROI and 4 straight NCGA Iowa yield titles. But, unforeseen was the effect his higher yields and no-till operation would have on soybean emergence the following spring.
