Soil sampling is a vital tool in modern agriculture, aiding in sustainable farming practices, improving crop yields, reducing costs, and ensuring the long-term health and productivity of the soil. But as farmers work more and more acres, how do you keep up?
Grain carts have evolved over the years, mostly in that they’ve become enormous. Aside from size, what else is happening with the ubiquitous implements running beside combines at harvest? Right hand discharge and dual augers are two new technologies already available. The future promises autonomous grain catchers, in-field grain reservoirs, and more. Damian talks to Demco’s Troy Woelber and Benji Vande Griend.
After a month of running the Fendt 936 Vario, Layne talks about the in-cab experience.
Thanksgiving is about family, so Kevin decided to make sure that health problems did not cause his Uncle Rob to miss another harvest.
In this episode of Cutting The Curve, Kevin shares his experience of switching to lime sourced from coastal areas or even from out of state. Understand why simply correcting soil pH isn't enough. Learn about the crucial calcium to magnesium ratio and its effect on soil composition. Matthews Farms observed immediate improvements in their fields after this change. How can the right lime can lead to balanced soils, enhanced porosity, increased organic matter, and more efficient fertilizer use. Remember, your closest lime source is not always your best lime source.
Temple Rhodes discusses his recent post-harvest trials with NutriCharge Release – and its effects on soil nutrient availability, specifically its ability to unlock phosphorus in manure-rich soils.
Lee Lubbers says farmers too often— and too early — give up on their crop. We get it. It’s hot. It’s dry. Things don’t look good and the prospect of bumping out a respectable yield seem unlikely. But, as Lee has learned, you gotta continue to round the bases even during a drought year like he just experienced. Lee explains to Damian how he’s adjusting for success in 2024 with amended practices he’s already performing.
If you are going to run hydraulics on your tractor, then you need to crank those RPMs, right? Maybe not so much. Full hydraulic Flow at low RPMS. Matt says it is good for engine-wear and good for your wallet.
