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.
Dan Loves the smell of chicken litter in the morning so it's no surprise that he is at it again at 3:30 am on a cold Northern Illinois morning. He's a big believer in the value of chicken litter as a soil enhancer.
It's been a great first year at XtremeAg. We learned a lot and we hope you did as well. We also had some fun, because if you are not having fun while farming, then you are not farming the right way. Thank you to all our partners and members for making 2020 a great year. Here we come 2021!
Dan is taking his Rapid-Till out again to experiment with some fall strip tillage in order to break up any compaction between rows and build a berm for spring planting.
Kelly Garrett has learned a lot about his soil this year from working with Mike Evans from Integrated Ag Solutions and Jason and Bodie from Next Level Ag. Perhaps most important is the key learning that soil fertility needs soil energy in order to create plant available nutrients. In this member video, Kelly talks about his plan to create more energy in the soil before planting season.
In the spring of 2020, Kelly Garrett saw an opportunity to maximize the value of his acres by monetizing the carbon credits he had accrued from his sustainable field management practices. Teaming up with Locus Agricultural Solutions and their CarbonNow program, Kelly became the first farmer to get paid for his carbon credits. In this video, Kelly talks with Shane Head from Locus Ag about the CarbonNow program.
Dan is waiting for the grain cart so he is out of the combine taking a look at one of his favorite aftermarket attachments, the Stalk Devastator. Great job shredding the stalks and a great ROI for his combine. But, guess what he loves most about them?
You can learn a lot from a row of corn. In this case, Dan is down to one of his last rows of corn and he is noticing some dramatic differences in the growth patterns of the plants in a single row of corn. Dan takes stops combining for a minute to share his thoughts on the reason for the non-uniform growth.
Kelly takes the Geringhoff 15-inch corn head to the scene of the derecho crime to see if it performs as promised. He's not winning any races running at 1.2 mph, but if it helps him get the most out of this downed corn then it is well worth it.
