Miles Farms is running 24/7 trying to get their rice crop in. Layne talks about the pre-emerge program they are using and the battle against red rice.
The XtremeAg team will each discuss a problem, solution, big idea, new technology, area of focus, or new methodology they’re implementing this spring. Our industry expert presenter will be Robb Dedman of Ultimate Ag Consulting. As usual, Robb and the XA guys will be accessible for questions, explanations, and deeper dives into the subject matter during this interactive event. Join us for insights and inspiration to make your farm prosper!
Matt Miles farms a lot of land and a lot of different crops, and therefore he has also made his share of mistakes over his farming career. But, he tries to learn from every one of them. Well, he has made another mistake to learn from involving Italian Rye Grass.
Kevin Matthews is sharing his soybean production program for normal non-irrigated production fields with a yield goal of 70+ bushel per acre. From pre Emergence burn down to R3 fungicide and more, he shares the application timing, products, rates and observations that he uses on his non-irrigated production fields on his North Carolina farm.
Successful businesses analyze their successes and shortcomings so they know how to adjust moving forward. If you’re a farmer, you’re in the business of crop production, so what lessons have you learned that you’ll apply to next year? Kelly Garrett shares his 5 lessons from this year and explains how he’ll utilize those lessons for a successful 2022. Lesson #5 Calcium

Dan is joined by Kyle Ostenson from Valley Irrigation to break down the new crop monitoring system that Dan just installed on his new pivot. Valley Insights uses aerial imagery and cameras mounted on the pivot towers to scout for crop health concerns related to water application or other issues in the field.
In most of the corn and soybean growing regions, we envision center pivots when we think of irrigation. But in an Ag world impacted increasingly by environmental forces compelling us to till less and drastically reduce resource consumption, we may utilize more drip irrigation. Dan Luepkes explains the Netafim drip irrigation system he uses to set yield records on his Illinois farm. You’ll see command central, the distribution infrastructure, and head in field to see the results.
Soil data and tissue sampling data are used by farmers to make decisions and corrections during the growing season. But, some of the most important factors affecting crop performance are happening under the crop canopy. Kelly discusses the new drone technology from Aker that he is using on his farm this year to look at diseases, insect pressure, nutrient deficiencies, temperature, humidity, pressure, CO2 and O2 levels all under the canopy.
