After chopping a rye field earlier this spring, Dan planted silage corn on this field in June. It took a beating from a pretty bad hail storm that sheered off a good portion of the crop and has been battling the hot dry weather for the last month. But, Dan is pretty happy with his first field of double crop corn.
Proper grain storage can create a lot of on-farm efficiencies, but Matt has taken that to a new level with his innovative grain bin loop system. Matt developed the system as a way to move grain around from bin to bin without the use of augers and trucks. Proper grain storage can create a lot of on-farm efficiencies, but Matt has taken that to a new level with his innovative grain bin loop system. Matt developed the system as a way to move grain around from bin to bin without the use of augers and trucks. In this video, Matt explains how he uses the system to manage moisture levels and improves the profitability of his grain storage operation.
On the first day of 2020 corn harvest, Kelly is combining some 26% moisture corn When you are combining higher moisture corn it helps to have a concave that is gentle on the crop. The XPR2 Concaves keep delivering as advertised with reduced loss, and nice clean corn in the grain tank.
Lee is taking the time to rebuild his John Deere Air Seeders during some rare downtime. This year Lee is replacing the blades on his seeders as they are in danger of losing their bevel.
Why is Chad growing corn in an empty business park field that is soon to be concrete parking lot? Because one of Chad's keys to farming is research, research and more research.
Yield estimates are 300+ bpa in this field, an impressive feat considering the challenging red clay soil that Chad Henderson has to contend with on his North Alabama field.Chad talks about the use of his Yetter strip freshener to create optimum soil conditions for planting as key to the uniform emergence he sees in this corn crop. Kevin and Chad talk about the best advice they ever received from another farmer.
Dan went out to check on his crops and ended up in a strange new land. Well, it's not that strange, it's Matt Miles Arkansas rice field.
Chad and Kevin are in a non-irrigated field with a Hefty Hybrid that they are both very impressed with. The Alabama State Yield Record Holder is impressed with the stand-ability of this Hybrid, and important feature when a Hurricane is threatening.
Proactive crop management is essential to keeping crop diseases from becoming yield limiting or even yield-killing factors. In this member video, Kevin and Chad explain how to identify some of the more common corn leaf diseases including gray leaf spot, northern leaf blight, southern leaf blight, common and southern rust, and tar spot.
