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.
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.
With the ability to spray fields, scout for problems, identify pests and diseases, and more, drones offer a multitude of benefits for farmers. Johnny Verell is a believer in the technology and he talks with Damian Mason about how and why he uses a drone on his west Tennessee farm.
Caleb and Matt talk about their weed control program for this peanut crop.
Mike Wingrove and Mike Evans talk about their weed control program with Damian Mason. Is it tougher than it used to be? Are weeds more resistant? How do you change your program to stay one step ahead of the weeds?
Chad talks about the only adjuvant that he has come across so far that has successfully kept Atrazine in solution during his herbicide applications and the new micro pack he is trying out this season.
Matt and Layne talk about what it takes to grow a successful rice crop. Spoiler Alert: it is not easy.
Your crops emerged, you have an even stand, and you’re feeling pretty good about things. Now what? Well, now is the time to focus on plant health. What nutrients do your fledgling crops need and when do they need them? How can you tell whether or not your crops are as healthy as they should be? What’s the yield penalty you take for missing cues your crops are giving you about their health? The guys from XtremeAg share their early season plant health practices at the May 4th webinar.
