2022 will go down as one of the most challenging years in recent memory for producers. Difficult decision making started last fall when crop mix decisions were based on a hope there would be enough fertilizer. Then early spring brought insurance decisions and huge hail events in central Nebraska which raised the question whether to abandon or replant the crop. Every time we turn the corner a new event pops up and throws another curve ball at us. Markets look to be doing the same in this very pivotal moment.
Temple Rhodes farms on Maryland’s eastern shore, operates a couple other business ventures, and he’s now contributing to XtremeAg. Throughout the season we’ll tune in to see what Mr. Rhodes is doing with fungicide treatments, seed plots, and micronutrient products to increase fertility uptake — a big issue for his geography. Because Temple farms in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, he’s under an environmental microscope. Enjoy meeting Temple and hear about how he runs his operation to “never become complacent.”
The XtremeAg team will each discuss a problem, solution, big idea, new technology, area of focus, or new methodology they’re implementing this spring. Our industry expert presenter will be Robb Dedman of Ultimate Ag Consulting. As usual, Robb and the XA guys will be accessible for questions, explanations, and deeper dives into the subject matter during this interactive event.
