Chad Henderson is a student of farming. He is always putting his test acres through rigorous conditions and new applications to see how the crop performs. So, when XtremeAg partner, Agroliquid, stopped by Chad's place to talk about some test plots they wanted him to run this year, well...it was pretty much a no-brainer. Here is what Chad will be looking at this year from Agroliquid.
Dan comes up with some of his best ideas on rainy days. Today he has enlisted the help of his son to test the connections and flow rates of his planter's fertility system. Better to find a problem in the shop than in the field.
Last week we had a call with Jason Schley from Next Level Ag in South Dakota. We were looking at some soil samples we pulled a few weeks ago; they ran them through their lab and learned a lot of information, including a few things we hadn’t seen before. One of the questions that came up in that call was “what is our soil pH at varying depths?”
In this video, Dan shares a unique way that he developed to solubilize Copper Sulfate before application. He utilizes the homemade method as a way to extend the coverage of his supply of copper sulfate when input prices are high and dry spreading is not feasible.
If you know Matt Miles, then you know that Matt seems to always be struggling with extreme weather conditions. Wet, dry, hot, cold, snow, tornados and hurricanes, Miles Farms has seen it all in their little southeast corner of Arkansas. All the more reason that Matt needs his young corn to be well protected and well nourished when it makes its way out of the ground. Matt is putting together a cocktail of products from Concept Agri-Tek this year that he thinks will be the perfect mix for his crop.
Every farmer seems to have their own unique way of plumbing their planter fertility system. In this video, Chad Henderson walks viewers through the fertility system on his planter and discusses some of the new additions from IntegratedAg Solutions he is most excited about.
Kevin was impressed with the results he got from the Agroliquid products he used last year. He just received a selection of the products he will be using this year. He joins Agroliquid expert, James Bates for a little product talk.
