There are a lot of promises made when it comes to using biologicals, but how do you know if they are actually working? And what exactly are they working on? Damian digs in with the folks from Holganix, and looks at crop and soil responses in order to answer one BIG question: Are These Biologicals Really Doing Anything?
Kelly is running a nitrogen reduction trial on his corn. Well, its more than reduction, he is growing corn without any additional nitrogen on a few acres. Is it working? Why is he doing this? Damian talks about the economics of big decision making on your farm, specifically as it relates to reducing inputs.
Temple is cutting the last bit of one of the best wheat crops he has seen on his farm. He talks about his program, changes he has made and what he thinks really worked well this season.
Farming is often about managing timing and windows of opportunity. Chad discusses how he uses one particular product to help him manage a field that is difficult to access.
You've heard a lot about biologicals lately. Damian asks the questions you want to know about biologicals. Do you really need them? How do you know if you need them? How do you know if they work? Do you need them if you have already have rich fertile soil. If you are considering biologicals, this is the segment you need to listen to first.
Kelly talks about how his regenerative farming and high-yield paths are not mutually exclusive. He talks about a trial he is conducting in a very tough environment.
Temple says you are giving that plant a kick in the butt when you apply a PGR, but what happens after is more important.
Are you using PGRs? There are a lot of PGR's on the market, but do you know why you should use them, when to apply them and which type to use? Mark Coots from Teva Corporation has been working with PGRs for a long time. He answers Kevin's questions about PGRs.
