Arkansas produces over 9 billion pounds of rice per year (nearly half of all US rice production) and it is the state's top agricultural export. In this video, Matt Miles and Robbo Dedman take you on a tour of their complex rice growing operation. You may not be growing rice yourself, but there is a lot to learn by listening to these two rice experts talk shop in the field.
Dan made the switch from an airbag downforce system to Precision Planting's DeltaForce system a few years ago. Like others, he weighed the cost of retrofitting his planter with the new technology versus the potential yield ROI of a crop that is planted at a uniform depth from end to end. In this video Dan talks about the ROI he sees from DeltaForce on his tougher no-till fields.
Kelly talks about some of the products that he is using in his sprayer tanks from Hefty Naturals that help remove chlorine and condition the water. He is also applying Meltdown from Biodyne USA to help accelerate stalk break down before he plants beans into his no-till corn.
Dan is on his final day of beans and he is finishing up in one of his no-till fields. Covered in a blanket of heavy corn residue left over form last year's harvest, the ground is dry and hard. Dan takes you inside the cab to talk about some of the technology, including Precision Planting's Clean Sweep, that he uses to make sure things are being done right in this challenging 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?”
Kelly Garrett discusses the carbon trade and how he’s making money to sequester carbon while improving his acres on the Business of Agriculture.
Everyone is telling Kelly that his idea to plant soybeans in December is a bad one, but he doesn't care. So, he's got a few bags of beans and he's putting in 30 acres before winter sets in.
It's the XtremeAg.farm member webinar where the team unveils results from various trials, discusses key learnings and insights from the 2020 season. Topics discussed include, foliar and starter fertilizer trials, population research, soybean desiccation, late season nitrogen applications, seed selection, tillage, fungicide, biologicals, boron, sulfur, fertility, and much more.
