Did seed genetics exist 20-30 years ago that could have gotten today's yields if managed correctly with fertility? Or are our fertility plans just that much better at getting the most out of seed genetics? What has improved more over the past three decades? Damian asks XtremeAg's Kevin Matthews and Nachurs' Jason Worley: "Is it the Chicken or the Egg?"
Sometime between your crop's late reproductive stage and mid-winter, you have the opportunity to improve your soil quality and protect it from erosion by planting cover crops. Do you plant cover crops? Chances are, you don’t. Because most farm ground acres lay barren from harvest until planting. Kelly Garrett sees that as a mistake now that he’s seeing big results and financial returns after several years into his cover crop journey. Kelly is joined by Austin Tiefenthaler, a cover crop seed producer, with advice on incorporating cover crops into your operations.
As you store your combine and grain cart with harvest 2023 in the rearview mirror, it’s the perfect time to fix your focus on crop year 2024. What inputs will you use, what changes will you make, and what practices could be altered for bigger results next year? The guys from XtremeAg address those questions and more in this webinar.
After six years, Kelly Garrett is almost certain he’ll be switching from Enlist-traited soybeans to Dicamba-traited soybeans in 2024. He and agronomist Mike Wingrove discuss the reason they’re contemplating this decision. Essentially, it boils down to a herbicide resistant weed issue. Which, so far isn’t costing much of a yield drag but…why wait until it does? They share with Damian Mason how they'll make the soybean switch successful.
Lee's giving a new seed treatment a whirl on his wheat fields this season. Stay tuned for the results.
The weather is cooling down, the combines have been rolling with fall harvest…it’s time to think about wheat! If you grow wheat or even if you don't. From seed selection, to field prep, to fertility practices, to seeding rate, to what they put in the sprayer and when they do their spraying, the XA team explains their methods and take your questions.
After another season comes to a close soon, Kelly is wondering if he needs to adjust his corn populations next season.
