Our industry expert presenter will be Robb Dedman of Ultimate Ag Consulting. As usual, Robb and the XA guys will be accessible for questions, explanations, and deeper dives into the subject matter during this interactive event. Join us for insights and inspiration to make your farm prosper!
Kevin Matthews is always looking for a way to improve upon how he does what he does on his North Carolina farming operation. In 2021 he implemented changes in how he plants, how he sprays, and how he harvests. Looking ahead to crop year 2022, he discusses how he’ll perfect his newly implemented changes. Remember, if you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always gotten. And that simply won’t do for an XtremeAg producer!

Heavy residue in Kelly's no-till environment can lead to Physoderma stalk rot. In this video Kelly talks about the trial he is doing with BASF's Veltyma™ to prevent stalk rot from setting in.

One of the biggest inconsistencies in farming today is something that many farmers overlook - water! As the carrier, it is the most essential component of every chemical application on your farm. Whether you source your water from a treatment facility, or from a well or farm pond, one thing is for sure - water is never just water.
Lee Lubbers takes his tender operations pretty seriously as any farmer should. In this video, Lee shows us the details of his spray tender operation.
Kelly talks about some of the products that he is using in his sprayer tanks from Hefty Naturals that help remove chlorine and condition the water. He is also applying Meltdown from Biodyne USA to help accelerate stalk break down before he plants beans into his no-till corn.
Kevin takes a break from the planting action to give members a tour of his tender trailer set up and explains the strategy behind the design and placement of each component. He knows first hand that a more efficient tender trailer results in a more efficient planting season.
