Successful businesses analyze their successes and shortcomings so they know how to adjust moving forward. If you’re a farmer, you’re in the business of crop production, so what lessons have you learned that you’ll apply to next year? Kelly Garrett shares his 5 lessons from this year and explains how he’ll utilize those lessons for a successful 2022. Lesson #3: Xyway in the 2x2
Kelly used Xyway LFR in his 2x2 application this spring and compared it against an untreated control strip right next to it. Both plots were not treated with any additional fungicide application all season long. So what happened?
Dan went early with his first fungicide pass in early July, so now he is out doing a second application with some added fertility from Nachurs in mid August. Building kernel weight and depth is his focus now for the rest of the season.
There is tar spot reports just south of Dan's farm and he is moving the timing of his spray application of BASF''s Veltyma as well as OnWard from AgXplore to VT now. Dan talks about the application details.
Kevin talks with the experts at BASF about the right timing for application of Veltyma fungicide in order to maximize protection against the heavy disease pressure in his area. They also address best practices for application and some of the common diseases that Kevin sees in his area.
Kelly and Connor "Vern" Garrett are in a contest field with FMC's Gail Stratman talking about their approach to managing disease and how they are using Xyway™ to suppress leaf diseases through the 2x2.
Heavy residue in Kelly's no-till environment can lead to Physoderma stalk rot. In this video Kelly talks about the trial he is doing with BASF's Veltyma™ to prevent stalk rot from setting in. He also discusses the soybean population trials he is conducting this year and the foliar application he is delivering using a mix of products from TEVA Corporation, AgXplore and Hefty Naturals.
When you farm in the south, disease pressure is extremely heavy. This year, Chad Henderson applied FMC's Xyway™ product in-furrow at planting time. Here is an update on his v7 stand so far.
After a very successful planting season and some very impressive stands so far in his young corn crop, Matt takes a minute to talk about his experience so far with FMC's Xyway in-furrow fungicide.
