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 taking his Rapid-Till out again to experiment with some fall strip tillage in order to break up any compaction between rows and build a berm for spring planting.
The definition of insanity is to do the same thing repeatedly with the same outcome. Well, Dan is definitely not insane and he is showing us how he applies on the go management in this latest video.
Dan is back in the field that he used the strip-freshener last spring and he likes what he sees. Keeping the moisture in the soil early on in the spring with s strip-till approach rather than full-till, seems to have paid off in what was a very dry year in northern Illinois.
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.
It was a challenge for Chad to plant corn into wheat and soybean double-crop stubble as the soil would not dry out enough in time for March/April planting due to the leftover crop residue from the previous season's double-crop. Chad found a solution with a modified strip-freshener he built.
Lee Lubbers bought this land 10 years ago after it had been used as a pasture for 1940's. After spraying it out, the buffalo grass roots made it nearly impossible to close a seed trench for the first three years. But, Lee was committed to his no-till philosophy and no matter how tempting it was, he would not till the field. The legend of Never-Till.
