Keeping the nutrients going into the plant late in the season is key to getting the most out of plant potential right up to harvest. Dan shows us what he looks for in his corn plants just before harvest and discusses his thoughts on keeping the plant green late into the season.
Dan is a big fan of taking poor performing land and turning it into some of his best performing land. He has done it before and he is at it again this year. The first step is to get the drainage situation straightened out.
Melissa provides an overview of the last soybean field trial before they roll the combines in. She shows us the clear differences between the untreated check and the treated plot and talks about the management of the treated field.
Melissa has seen a lot of corn over the years but this one is a little different. She's got purple roots, and purple stalks on some of her corn this year. Is it just a case of 2020?
Kelly has been focusing on driving higher corn yields every year and it has paid off in both ROI and 4 straight NCGA Iowa yield titles. But, unforeseen was the effect his higher yields and no-till operation would have on soybean emergence the following spring.
Dan is taking some time to address some drainage issues on a few of his fields with a waterway. Dan uses his own equipment to make it more cost effective and to get it done in a timely manner.
In sports they tell you to leave it all on the field. In farming the goal is to leave nothing on the field. Kelly's field was hit hard by the derecho earlier this summer and final yield totals suffered greatly as a result.
Lee takes a look at the yield variability in one of his soybean plots that is resulting from differing soil types. From 30-40 bpa beans to 70+ bpa beans in a matter of a few feet. With no rain for nearly 8 weeks, his soybeans went through their reproductive stage without a drink.
