When Concept Agritek came to Chad Henderson with a new biological fungicide for his wheat crop he was skeptical at first. Then when he rolled in with his combines he saw no yield bump at all compared to his normal fungicide practice. So where was the ROI? Chad sits down with Mark and Daniel from Concept Agritek and explains why Bio-Aid Fungicide is now a part of his standard wheat management program. They also talk about his use of CalBor as a way to effectively deliver a blend of calcium and boron through a foliar applications.
Kevin Matthews of Matthews Family Farms in Yadkinville, NC joins Dr. Ruhiyyih Young of BASF to discuss how to achieve great results with proper soybean fungicide treatment. Kevin’s approach to soybeans is all about maximizing daylight for maximum plant performance. Once you’ve got the timing worked out, fungicide application — and its proper timing— can set you on the path to higher yields.
Dan has a little white mold issue with his soybeans and talks about the strategy for applications and timing with Revytek.
Kevin talks with the experts at BASF about protecting his soybeans from diseases during the second half of the season and the critical windows of protection that can mean the difference between a healthy crop and a struggling crop.
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.
Kelly has been dodging the wet weather trying to get his Hefty 1.1 and 1.3 variety beans in the ground as soon as possible. Soil temps are in the 50's and cold weather is on the way. But, Kelly is not as concerned as he would have been in past seasons since he he treated then with BASF's 4-way fungicide protection product. He is also putting an in-furrow combo of Rhizolizer® Duo from Locus Ag Solutions and Vertex-IF from TerraMax.
In this Cutting The Curve Webinar, Nick Fleitz, agronomist from Pentair Hypro talks with Kevin Matthews and Layne Miles about proper nozzle selection for PWM systems such as the John Deere ExactApply™
It's the XtremeAg.farm member webinar where the team unveils results from various trials, discusses key learnings and insights from the 2020 season. Topics discussed include, foliar and starter fertilizer trials, population research, soybean desiccation, late season nitrogen applications, seed selection, tillage, fungicide, biologicals, boron, sulfur, fertility, and much more.
