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.
Pigweed — layman’s term for Water Hemp and Palmer Amaranth — is a big problem. The species which is native to the desert southwest has successfully migrated to crop fields throughout the U.S. Because of its roots in the desert and its biology, the plants are tough to kill and getting even tougher. XA’s Matt Swanson and Caleb Traugh join FMC’s Blaire Colvin to discuss strategies to manage an increasingly resistant class of weeds that’s very prolific and capable of causing huge yield drags.
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!”
As dry as it has been this year in Iowa and across most of the midwest, the last thing you would expect to see is tar spot. But, guess what Kelly found in his field?
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.
When crops experience water stress their ability to absorb nutrients and perform essential physiological functions becomes compromised. Kelly found a mobile irrigation solution with the help of NutraDrip.
Kevin Matthews had a corn field hit by hail in late June. After assessing the damage, he decided to deviate from his usual approach to save the hailed corn.
He is focused on enhancing soil health, boosting microbial activity, and increasing nutrient availability. These improvements reduce the energy needed to transport nutrients to the plants, allowing more energy to be allocated towards growth. He is currently testing a new product from Holganix this season that claims to do all of this.
