Farmers are increasingly impacted by environmental policy or pressure to reduce utilization of the big macronutrients. SourceCorn is a product that is being trialed by XtremeAg and proposing this promise: Spend $14 per acre for this foliar applied product and you’ll save more than that in nitrogen application and maintain the same yield (or even do better!). Damian discusses Soil health and the future of fertilizer use with Eamon Flood from SoundAg.
Chad was inspired by a member question last week about what he needs to do to get over the wall that he feels he has hit and push higher yields. He lends his thoughts on what to look at when pushing yields.
We’ve been instructed since the advent of soil testing on the importance of the macronutrients — nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium. But what about carbon? Where’s it on the soil sample, why do I need it, and where do I buy it for my crops?
The Alabama state corn yield record holder likes what he sees so far with his contest corn. It also happens to be the location for the Lab trial he is conducting with AgXplore products. He talks about the program and how he plans to finish out the season with what he hopes will be a new Alabama yield record.
Sometimes the right strategy and a strong finish can even make up for a slow start. The guys from XtremeAg will share their late season strategies to help you push through the finish line as a winner.
What should you be doing between now and running those combines to get maximum return from your crop? Chad says it's not too late to make a difference. Here is why.
Chad's a big fan of sweetness. He can't ever get enough sugar into his crop. Now he is applying a sweet fulvic from Concept Agritek. He knows it's gonna be good already just by the smell. He explains what he likes in a fulvic.
Humic Acid and Fulvic Acid. What's the difference? One is for soil building and one is for nutrient uptake. We break down the details on when and how to use Humics and Fulvics on your farm and how do you know if they are working?
The Red River valley of southern Manitoba experienced flooding in Spring 2022. XtremeAg affiliate Riley Anderson had one field submerged under flood waters for more than a month. This would be a problem anytime of the year but with it happening during spring warm up, the flooding killed off soil biology. As Riley puts it, “It smelled like it was dead and rotting.” Now he’s working to revive his soil biology to make it productive and healthy sooner versus later. Because...degraded assets are bad for business and as a farmer, your soil is your biggest asset!
