Chad is spraying his wheat with Nitrate for the first time this season. He is using a new 6-stream nozzle from Pentair Hypro to put out a Solubor blend. He breaks it down in this video.
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!
Worn spray nozzles can have a significant impact on the performance of your sprayer and ultimately the crop protection chemistry it is used to apply. How do you know when spray nozzles are worn and should be changed? How can you avoid the performance issues related to worn spray nozzles? And how long should we expect spray nozzles to last?
This is our first year where we operated two of our sprayers with all-wheel steering, and the difference in crop damage caused by sprayer tracks has been eye-opening, to say the least.
Nick Fleitz, agronomist from Pentair Hypro stops by to talk with Kevin about his spray tips, maintenance, best practices and spray settings for his fungicide applications.
Dan went early with his first fungicide pass in early July, so now he is out doing a second application with some added fertility from Nachurs in mid August. Building kernel weight and depth is his focus now for the rest of the season.
Kelly talks about ground versus air applications and the foliar feeding products he is incorporating into his latest Veltyma fungicide application, including products from Nachurs, and AgXplore.
Dan has a little white mold issue with his soybeans and talks about the strategy for applications and timing with Revytek.
