Matt Swanson used to apply fertility at time of planting in furrow. But then he stopped, for various reasons not the least of which was ineffectiveness. Now he’s dabbling back into in-furrow with a 40 acre experiment in conjunction with AgroLiquid.
The best way for Kevin to figure out if he wants to use a product on his farm is to just put it into an application and see how it performs. He talks about the Impulse Corn product he is trialing from Spraytec. Stay-tuned to see if it performs as he needs it to in the 4th quarter of the season.
Johnny Verell and his chief sprayer operator talk to Damian about the after-market reversing fan technology that prevents their radiator from clogging up with corn pollen and overheating. Preventing this from happening during early season spraying jobs is easy, but when the corn gets tall you’d be stopping routinely to blow out your machine’s cooling system. Now it’s handled automatically so you can keep on the task at hand!
Caleb gets out of his truck to brace the 110 degree heat index in order to talk about his double-crop corn planted into a watermelon field. It's a fast mover: V4 in the morning and V5 by the evening.
Caleb, Matt and AgroLiquid's Molly Alexander talk about the program they are implementing on Caleb's peanut field, and their plan for making sure the plants focus their energy on the things that are going to make him more money. A great conversation for all farmers and all crops.
Johnny Verell and Brian Adams double crop corn is in full pollination. They assess plant health and talk about their next steps to bring this late planted crop to yield.
Mark Coots of Teva Corporation evaluates the condition of a corn plant and demonstrates what to you should be looking at and what can be learned for next season.
Temple Rhodes doesn’t mind pushing the envelope late season, especially if he stands to make 3 times his investment back. He explains what’s in his final soybean pass and why he does it.
It's drought-tolerant nature and ability to withstand harsh conditions makes Milo a good choice for farmers looking for a different crop with high yield potential. It is also not the preferred food for the local deer population -- a big reason Temple chose to plant it this season. Temple talks with Robb Dedman about managing milo in Maryland.
