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.
After your combine completes the harvest pass, the remaining residue begins breaking down. But if you let this breakdown happen on nature’s timetable, you’re wasting valuable nutrients. Last year’s crop residue holds fertility that you’ve already paid for — an effective management plan recycles your fertility investment. Temple, Chad, and Holganix’s Rob McCoy discuss the importance of residue management.
It's early September and Temple's corn is still green from top to bottom. He talks about the late season fertility plan with Tommy and Jason from Nachurs.
How do you know if you’ve gone too far if you don’t push the envelope? Temple says “send it!”
Matt Swanson is in one of his management zones that is historically a wetter part of the field. He talks about the management of this non-gmo food grade crop thus far.
One of the things that is in every one of Kelly's reproductive passes on his crop is potassium acetate. He talks about how, when and why he applies it.....and the ROI he sees from it.
Kevin talks with Tommy Roach of Nachurs about the late season push he made to build test weight on his corn crop. It looks like it paid off.
Kevin is in an area where he has historically seen 180-200 bpa at best on his corn crop. He is seeing a lot more this season. He stops the combine to take a look what is happening and share the details of the program he implemented in this field.
