Drawing on years of experience, Chad talks about how he has utilized Proven 40 for efficient and sustainable nitrogen usage on his farm. He discusses the challenges encountered and the solutions he has applied on his farm.
Kelly Garrett discusses two critical corn trials he conducted this season, focusing on sustainable agriculture practices and efficient use of nitrogen in farming: Nitrogen Stabilizer Trial and a Nitrogen Application Trial.
Did seed genetics exist 20-30 years ago that could have gotten today's yields if managed correctly with fertility? Or are our fertility plans just that much better at getting the most out of seed genetics? What has improved more over the past three decades? Damian asks XtremeAg's Kevin Matthews and Nachurs' Jason Worley: "Is it the Chicken or the Egg?"
They sliced and diced this corn early on as the cover crop wouldn't die off. After mowing it, they figured it would just end up being cattle feed, but somehow they managed to use fertility to take it to yield and learned something in the process.
As you store your combine and grain cart with harvest 2023 in the rearview mirror, it’s the perfect time to fix your focus on crop year 2024. What inputs will you use, what changes will you make, and what practices could be altered for bigger results next year? The guys from XtremeAg address those questions and more in this webinar.
What you are doing in the fall — from the combine pass until the calendar flips to the new year — can have a big impact on nutrient availability for your crops come next summer. XA’s Matt Swanson explains how the impact of tillage, residue degradation products, or cover crops affect nutrient distribution and availability for next summer’s crop. A great discussion on a subject you’re probably not thinking enough about in this episode of Cutting The Curve with Damian Mason.
There is an economic principle that states that, after a certain point, each additional unit of input (like fertilizer) will result in progressively smaller increases in output (like crop yield). This means that there's an optimal amount of fertilizer for a given crop in a given soil, and beyond that point, you're just wasting money. Well, as it turns out, much — or maybe even most — of your applied Phosphorous and Potassium is unavailable for your crops. In the old days of inexpensive fertilizer this was less of a problem. However, as commodity prices dip and fertilizer prices remain elevated, you need to maximize your fertility applications. Chad Henderson maximizes his investment by treating his dry fertilizer with a biocatalyst. The $4 per acre treatment yields Chad an additional 12 bushels while using less fertilizer. Agronomist Steve Sexton explains how it works.
Farmers have come a long way from the days of blasting out a load of dry fertilizer early in the season. Kevin Matthews and Jason Worley from Nachurs talk with Damian Mason about pushing a corn crop with late season applications. How late is too late?
Plant biostimulants have gained significant attention in the world of agriculture and in recent years. But what exactly are they, and how can they benefit your crop? Damian Mason is in the Stoller booth at Farm Progress to find out what exactly a biostimulant is and more importantly, what their role is in getting you to the next yield level.
