While checking out some of the neighboring crops this week, Dan stops to do a little Irrigating with his phone using the AgSense mobile app. Dan Luepkes is The Remote Irrigator.
Dan is loading out some beans from last year and he really like what he sees in the grain sample straight from the discharge auger. No cracking, no breaks, no pods. Just clean beans.
Kelly Garrett takes some time to reflect on some his key learnings this year and shares the knowledge he has learned. From plant available nutrients, to growing profitable carbon to turning profits with carbon credits, to plant chelation and growth regulators, Kelly unloads it all in this member video.
In this member video, Kevin takes us into his field to scout for diseases. He shows us how to identify Gray Leaf Spot and talks about controlling diseases and the importance of being in your field regularly.
Kevin Matthews shares an innovative and very cost effective method he uses to deliver Nitrogen to his corn crop all the way up to just before tassel.
Mark Coots from Teva Corporation, stopped by Dan's farm this week to take a look at the progress of the bean trial plots. There are some clear differences especially when it comes to the plots that were Y-dropped compared to those that dry-banded.
The rolling hills, 100+ foot elevation changes and odd-shaped fields made it impossible to install a center pivot system. Five years ago, Kelly found a way to bring water to his field through drip irrigation.
Soil biology is a big part of Dan's farming plan and Brad Forkner from Nutrient Management Specialist is his goto expert for stirring up bio-activity in his soil. Dan chats with Brad about the basics of soil biology and the additives that NMS is using to increase plant uptake of nutrients in the soil.
