There’s an old saying about good things taking time. Such is the promise of biological crop inputs— while they do provide an immediate result, their larger benefit accumulates over time.
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.
He is focused on enhancing soil health, boosting microbial activity, and increasing nutrient availability. These improvements reduce the energy needed to transport nutrients to the plants, allowing more energy to be allocated towards growth. He is currently testing a new product from Holganix this season that claims to do all of this.
Johnny Verell talks about the applications he made to his corn crop this season with the goal of packing weight into those kernels.
Johnny and Brewer are scouting soybeans and look at the differences they see between intensive management and standard management programs.
Johnny Verell is collaborating with Stoller to enhance the growth of bean plants this season. He discusses the program he is implementing on his soybeans and examines their progress during the R-6.5 stage.
Biologicals have emerged in force over the past decade. Do you apply biologicals and if so, when? Chad Henderson discusses his large-scale trials of applying biologicals post - harvest.
As the corn plant switches its focus from vegetative to reproductive, Kelly and Connor really like the way this PGR delivers a late season boost.
