Kelly takes his new Honeybee Airflex Header for a spin during wheat harvest. There are a few things he immediately likes about it.
Take a closer look at the high-tech drain tile system that Chad uses to manage the water table level exactly where he needs it at all times...even in a drought.
Kelly talks about the new system he installed on his Hagie sprayer that allows you to maintain the correct sprayer pressure at various speeds. The Pinpoint 2 system is ideal for use in terrain such as Kelly's where steep hills and valleys make it difficult to maintain speeds.
Shannon Norwood from Tri-Green Equipment stops by Chad's shop to share a few important deadlines, updates and changes regarding Deere technology.
Kevin takes a close look at each of the components that make up CapstanAg's SelectShot system as installed on his JohnDeere ExactEmerge planter this spring. The unique add-on system delivers a shot of fertilizer as each seed is dropped into the furrow, reducing fertilizer use when compared to the traditional "dribble" approach that is used by most in-furrow planter systems.
Kelly's big focus this season has been reducing crop stress. He believes that we have enough fertility in the plant, and that in order to bust that yield ceiling he needs to mitigate stress. All of his growing season stress reducers have been applied at the foliar level. Can he reduce crop stress by applying stress reducers at the root level through a drip system? He is teaming up with Netafim, NutraDrip, Agricen and Iowa State to find out this season.
Kelly talks with his neighbor about his experience using the Spraytec Fulltec adjuvant on a spray application last season. Kelly will be trialing it this season.
Kelly is starting up his Netafim subsurface drip irrigation system for the first time this season. Kurt Grimm from NutraDrip explains the start-up process.
Lee takes the Fendt Momentum Planter to the field as part of his side by side test with his John Deere.
