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.
There is an economic principle that states that, after a certain point, each additional unit of input (like fertilizer) will result in progressively smaller increases in output (like crop yield). This means that there's an optimal amount of fertilizer for a given crop in a given soil, and beyond that point, you're just wasting money. Well, as it turns out, much — or maybe even most — of your applied Phosphorous and Potassium is unavailable for your crops. In the old days of inexpensive fertilizer this was less of a problem. However, as commodity prices dip and fertilizer prices remain elevated, you need to maximize your fertility applications. Chad Henderson maximizes his investment by treating his dry fertilizer with a biocatalyst. The $4 per acre treatment yields Chad an additional 12 bushels while using less fertilizer. Agronomist Steve Sexton explains how it works.
Cotton needs a lot of love. Layne and Caleb talk to Molly from AgroLiquid about the nutrient management program they are running on their cotton fields this year.
Matt Miles needs bigger cotton roots to fend off nematode issues. He is excited about the potential root growth in this trial with Holganix.
Are your plant hormones imbalanced? There is probably a good chance they are. Here is what you need to know about the 5 principal hormone families. What their roles are and how to manage them to maximize plant health.
Matt just finished planting his cotton trial for Loveland Products. He is focused on mitigating stress and getting the in-furrow fertility just right this season.
When it comes to cotton, getting calcium into the plant has always been a challenge for Matt Miles. How does he plan to get more calcium in his cotton plants at full boll load?
Matt has an issue that he needs to make a decision about ASAP. His cotton needs to find moisture in a bed of dust.
