Kelly Garrett has learned a lot about his soil this year from working with Mike Evans from Integrated Ag Solutions and Jason and Bodie from Next Level Ag. Perhaps most important is the key learning that soil fertility needs soil energy in order to create plant available nutrients. In this member video, Kelly talks about his plan to create more energy in the soil before planting season.
Lee takes a look at the yield variability in one of his soybean plots that is resulting from differing soil types. From 30-40 bpa beans to 70+ bpa beans in a matter of a few feet. With no rain for nearly 8 weeks, his soybeans went through their reproductive stage without a drink.
He's got the field all cleaned out and is drilling his cover crop back into it. It's been a pretty productive field for Dan this season.
Cover crops have many benefits including erosion control, soil health, nutrient preservation, improve water quality, and control of pests, weeds, and diseases. In this member video, Dan shares his cover crop program and talks about why he moved from planting all rye cover crops to a blend.
Matt Miles was so impressed by his recent visit to Kelly Garrett in western Iowa that he is now trying an experiment to see if he can recreate Iowa's legendary soil on his Arkansas farm.
Yield estimates are 300+ bpa in this field, an impressive feat considering the challenging red clay soil that Chad Henderson has to contend with on his North Alabama field.Chad talks about the use of his Yetter strip freshener to create optimum soil conditions for planting as key to the uniform emergence he sees in this corn crop. Kevin and Chad talk about the best advice they ever received from another farmer.
Kelly Garrett takes some time to reflect on some his key learnings this year and shares the knowledge he has learned. From plant available nutrients, to growing profitable carbon to turning profits with carbon credits, to plant chelation and growth regulators, Kelly unloads it all in this member video.
Kevin and Reid Abbott take a look at Kevin's corn crop and talk about the trial product from AgroLiquids he is using this year. Reid shares details on a new potassium-based calcium product that AgroLiquids is scheduled to make available to growers for next season.
Reid Abbott, agronomy manager for AgroLiquid, stopped by to talk soybeans with Kevin this week. Reid said these are the best looking soybeans he's seen. They discuss stem growth, nodulation, foliar applications and micro nutrient packages from AgroLiquids.
