Preventing Crop Stress Before It Occurs
22 May 2333 min 6 sec

Kelly Garrett has stated repeatedly that stress prevention, he believes, is a priority in pursuing higher yields. In 2022 he made stress mitigation his main over-riding objective. Now he tells us what he learned from 2022 and how he’s applying that knowledge to crop year 2023. Kelly explains the products, the placement, the practices, and the reasons for why he’s doing what he’s doing — to prevent crop stress before it occurs.

Presented by Loveland Products

00:00 Right now Kelly Garrett is dealing with one of those Springs that got started off and it was fantastic man. It looked like things were gonna 00:06 be great. And then it does what a lot of times it does especially in maybe our part of the Midwest it turned cold and gray 00:12 and wet and so he's about 1/4 planted. But he's not concerned because he has decided the biggest thing he can do is prevent stress for his 00:23 plans. Welcome to extreme acts cutting the curve podcast where we cut your learning curve with insights. You can apply immediately to your farming operation. This 00:32 episode is presented by Loveland products. When it comes to crop inputs, you need products that are field proven to deliver both results and value for more than 00:42 50 years. Loveland products has been providing Farmers with high performance value-driven product Solutions designed to 00:49 maximize productivity on every acre visit to see how their Innovative products 00:55 can help you farm more profitably and now here's your host Damien Mason. Well, hey there thanks for join us another episode of extreme average cutting the curve. We are talking today 01:05 about preventing stress before it occurs. All right, let's face it every Year's different every day. Sometimes you're farming seems like it can be different and sometimes you 01:14 don't have optimal conditions. But if you do the right things you avoid stress induced yield. So that was a big objective for 01:21 yours and 2022 you learn from it the stress mitigation practices continue to evolve talk to me Kelly. Well, the number one stress mitigating Factor the fourth 01:32 of the crop that we have planted when in the soil that was between 50 and 62 degrees soil temp. That's the easiest way to make your corn yield 01:41 better. Your beans yield better is to plant them into a warm soil. The other things that we do that is are I think are really important 01:47 at this time. You know, we've got products like accomplished Max or octane inferral with the stress mitigating properties. They 01:53 have the ingredients of those two products are derived from seaweed great, you know seaweed naturally has great stress mitigating factors. It 02:03 lives in a very wet cold environment When the tide comes in salty environment, very hot and dry environment wants out and you know Loveland for 02:12 want, you know, for example, Loveland has male to extract those properties put them into accomplished Max and we've seen great yield 02:19 gains in that over the years. We did a past recording where we talk to I think it was Steve Sexton about this 02:27 very thing and like let's face. This is pretty out there stuff. I mean in the last couple years we started hearing about kelp and seaweed. I might 02:36 man this is getting all out there. I mean, this is like in the old days until about putting eggs in your in your, you know, your your shampoo and stuff like 02:42 this, which clearly, you know, your big concert of shampoo. Yeah, but the thing is When you think about it's like okay somehow this this seaweed 02:52 can live getting tossed around and assaulty environment surviving oil spills and temperature. So that was the idea was 03:02 that we're extracting those properties. So one of those in particular seems like wet and cold would be where those kind of products actually help and and let's 03:12 face it. A lot of people do put seed in the ground and then it turns wet and cold. I mean it's just because you 03:19 want to get out there, you know that early planting can fetch you yield but not if all the sudden then it doesn't 03:25 germinate because it lays around whatever so you've got stuff out there and you're confident probably more than you were even just five years ago that cold wet soil is not going to cause you a germination 03:35 reduction. Yeah. So when Steve first came to me with the idea for that trial of accomplish Max, I believe it was in 21 fairly certain there. We 03:45 it was very hot and dry and that summer Steve came Dr. Brian Cornelius came will was here and we walked out across that field to 03:54 do a To do a video and their corn was almost knee-high and it was it was rolled up and we I thought 04:03 that what this is gonna be snake oil, you know, and we walked out across there got to the applied area. We had two different applied 04:09 areas. We get out through the corners unrolled and I thought to myself holy cow. If the rest of 04:15 the field is is rolled up looks like pineapple and and here this corn looks great and it went on to have a 10 bushel yield gain and a high yield 04:25 area 28 bushel yield gain in a low yield area and that trial is really what started me on this stress mitigation Journey that I've been on and it's 04:34 evolved in expanded now to Great blanks. So as I have told in a few if you're a listener, I apologize if you've heard this before but it's 04:43 so interesting to me. It was October of 2021. I was sitting in the office right there where Kelly is and I said, what's the big objective for you for 2022 and 04:53 he said for crop season 2022 Damian I'm gonna make about stress mitigation believe that we have ample nutrition. I believe they have ample fertility. I believe the seed is good 05:02 enough. I certainly think that we know what we're doing what comes to our equipment. I think that we're we're not doing good enough job 05:08 of preventing our plants from going through a stress factor. And so that was one of your big things that was up. That's post-planting. That's 05:14 that's obviously when the stuff is already. I'm trying to July August, whatever but talk about what you did 05:20 this year. So this the one quarter of the stuff that's in the ground you put it in soil. That's the right temperature. It's not gonna get colder. I 05:29 mean that the air temperature's cold, but by the time you're hitting May first, you're not gonna lose a lot of soil temperature now 05:35 because Length of days, right, right exactly the soil temperature is gonna vary some, you know, when we were planting before I think it topped out at 62 degrees and it 05:46 dropped down now to 42 44 degrees something like that. It was advertised to be more from the Iowa State website, but with our no-till it 05:56 probably doesn't get quite as warm as what I was state says it is and it doesn't get quite as cold. It doesn't move that much because 06:02 of the cover and so it dropped down to 42 or 43 degrees we believe but we're it germinated in warm soil. So we are happy and we're quite comfortable especially with 06:12 the products we have infer. Okay. So the there's that time of planting for corn you put two stress mitigation products in Furrow, right? 06:23 Yes, actually on the corn with corn we have accomplished Maxim Furrow and with soybeans we have octane infer okay, so one one's dress media it per 06:32 per crop at time planning info. Yes. Okay, then then the then okay, so hopefully correct soil temperature is one stress 06:41 mitigation thing. It's not a product. There is a product component to it. You just talked about the two products you use nothing after that. 06:48 What do you do for what do you do to prevent stress after that? I very much believe that a pgr infer a product 06:54 like Mega grow or radiate. We we put those one of those is on every acre of our farm corn and soybeans it helps develop root growth. And I I think 07:04 that's a no-brainer that that's the next thing is to have that pgr there. And a lot of people would say, how's the plant growth regulator reduce stress and you're going to say 07:13 it reduces stress because it It makes the plant grow more efficiently. It's going to make a bigger more robust root system. It's going to make the root system more. It's 07:23 gonna make the root system bigger better do a better job and it's going to increase the efficiency of the plant and any system that we're talking about whether we're 07:33 talking about a factory. We're talking about an engine or we're talking about a plant if you make a system more efficient, you take the stress off of it. 07:45 Interesting. He said root development what regular gives you greater root development. Then we always used to think that 07:51 you got root development if your soil was uncompacted. Oh and I'm trying 07:58 to think of the other things that we tried to say enhanced root development uncompacted soil was one of the big ones and 08:04 what's another one. I just I don't know because nobody ever certainly before I came into extreme AG ever 08:10 told me. Oh plant growth Regulators enhance fruit development. Well, you know, all of the other things we used to do 08:16 mechanically from proper seed depth and proper seed placement and uncompacted soil and not planning when it's 08:23 too wet to have that ribbon effect. All those things contribute to development but the pgr is the next step in 08:29 that Evolution now now we're using some tech using some technology to help even more. Okay. So over soybeans, how do you get a plant growth regulator on soybeans? You put 08:39 it in we so every acre. It'll be infertile at a four for us. It's out of four ounce rate. Now. It used to be a two ounce rate. There's new research out 08:50 of NC State that we've now have doubled that we go to a four ounce rate on that and then we'll we'll spray the pgr again. I post chem but 08:59 the first application is infer. Okay and down on soybeans. That is a I guess we should just stick with each crop then so let's talk about preventing stress crop 09:08 stress before it happens. Let's stick with soybeans. So again octane at time of planting in Furrow, they get a plant with regular at time of 09:14 planning infero and what else happens at time planning for stress mitigation for soybeans. 09:20 Okay. So now you know, this is where my opinion or my idea my perspective has broadened a little bit. You know what I've learned. I've learned this from spraytech 09:30 from Drew Ewing a disease persistent a plant because of a nutritional imbalance. So when we're trying to make the plant healthier trying to take the stress off the plant so we 09:40 want to we want to balance the plant just like we want to balance our soil Agronomy to me is chemistry plus biology and I've 09:49 got to get the chemistry as perfect as possible. Products really Agron Agronomy equals what plus biology chemistry plus biology. All right. 10:02 And what we've always thought was chemistry of least in the modern era. We thought chemistry chemistry 10:08 chemistry. I mean there the chemical companies and go and buy it by the by the by the drum and stick it out there and when I say can't well when I say chemistry, I 10:18 don't mean Roundup or Liberty or something like that when I say chemistry, I mean like, you know, we took chemistry junior year of high school and I'm talking about the elements. 10:27 I mean I this You know, I know I want my phosphorus to be 10 times my zinc. I know I want my carbon to be seven times my nitrogen. That's 10:37 the chemistry I'm talking about. Okay? All right. So at time of planning, we got stress mitigation. We've got something we've got a we got a product like octane and 10:48 Furrow and we got also a plant growth regulator infero then what do you go from there next thing? 10:54 You know, I I've got calcium in Pearl. I've got zinc in for and though that goes back to your Chemistry. You think that that's things? 11:03 balance equals stress meditation Balance equals plant Health equals new nutritionally balanced plant and that takes the stress off the plant, you know, 11:13 you yourself you are you would like to be neutral as a human you want to be as nutritionally balanced as possible. Imagine the stress on your body. If you're not 11:22 imagine the stress on your body. If you don't get enough protein, yep, imagine the stress on Damian's body if he doesn't 11:29 get enough Coors terrible, you know, so we got to have enough stuff. So then it goes matter of you put those things in there that we never even thought about in the old days right calcium 11:39 and zinc and solve for and all that stuff and it's not necessarily about deficiency. Sometimes it's about balance. 11:45 Well, they're stress on the plant because we are deficient of those elements. Yep. And so and calcium is a double positive charge 11:55 ion. And I believe as soon as I put it in the soil. It's going to get tied up. 12:01 So now I'm gonna put calcium in the furrow. And it's gonna be available for the plant to take up. It's gonna get tied up at some point, but it's gonna be available for the plant to take up and then I'm 12:11 going to spray calcium again in my post chemical pass to apply to calcium. I need supplement the plant to try 12:17 to nutritionally balance it. I have great calcium numbers in my soil but because of that double positive charge die 12:23 on. It doesn't it's not plan available. Yeah. All right. That's that time planning is anything else happen to produce stress at town planning on soybeans? 12:35 Also, okay in the two by two we've got nitrogen we've got sulfur and now we've also got ziway which is the fungicide we like to use. 12:45 The reason I want to use eyeway is because it's it's in the two by two the plant takes it up very early and it's life. It's a systemic 12:52 product and it's there throughout the season to protect the plant from diseases rather than spraying the fungicide at 12:58 BT which was the traditional practice. Now, we've got it in in that two by two and it's taking up by the plant. It's there all season again, we're protecting the plant we 13:07 just switch over from soybeans to corn. Kind of yes, we did. Okay. Well, I'm trying to tell you I was trying to keep you on a story you were you will 13:17 will always says Dear listener will always says that he thinks that the entire ensemble of extreme AG needs a prescription to Adderall. So 13:27 sometimes sometimes they do struggle a bit with and we do I never thought I'd find a group that had less a focus than me, but by God, I did. All right. 13:38 So we switched from soybeans to Corn let's go back because I was gonna say wait a minute on soybean thing for the season for 13:44 being crops just before it happens. You've given us everything and Furrow and then what are we doing? What are we doing after that? 13:51 You know, so there's gonna be an application of micro nutrients. Probably there will be there will be some inferral and then later on 13:58 we're going to do that to try to balance the crop. You know, the there's a lot of nitrogen in my soil. So I'm trying to balance the crop and I'm what 14:08 I need to balance is carbon sulfur micro nutrients, okay. Over the top by the time the soybeans are growing. Okay, they're 14:17 getting stressed by a certain point with moisture. You can't think about that unless you have irrigation you do know till I think I stress mitigating factor is you 14:27 conserve moisture. That's probably something that's important. What I when you're going over those soybeans your first pass are you 14:36 doing anything that reduces stress other than getting rid of weeds herbicide, whatever. Was there anything you're doing? Then? There will be a carbon product 14:44 in that pass. So probably be a sulfur product in there that pass there will be like we said earlier a calcium product in that 14:50 pass all of those things again trying to achieve that nutritional balance and that's all foliar stuff. Yep, don't folder stuff and and there will be 15:00 a radiator Mega grow will be in that pass as well and radiator May grow. The purpose of those is to do what pgr. 15:08 Got it make that plant more efficient. What's the last thing maybe there's stress that, you know talk about 15:14 preventing stress for it happens. There's always that time when stuff starts looking problematic, let's call it. I 15:20 don't know and you're part of the world. I'm guessing sometime in August or something like that. And you know, then you start 15:26 saying I could be sudden that's their own work could be this or could be that is there a way to just Olivia alleviate all that 15:32 preemptively and proactively well that we believe, you know, we we have we learned a lot last year. We have some great theories. We want to put them in the practice this year. 15:42 We had a lot of success last year and some trials the nutritional balance a disease persist and a plant because 15:48 of a nutritional imbalance. Yeah. If so if I can imagine that what's is that taking tissue samples from last year and then implementing what we 15:59 learn from last year to then this year and saying, we now know that we are behind the eight ball on stress 16:05 last year. So we're gonna be proactive this year and Yes, it is. That's part of it. There's there's a couple other products that we would apply foliar. One of 16:15 them is from integrated AG Solutions Shield X, which is a stress mitigating product. The other one would again be from Loveland. It's terramark, which has 16:24 terramar has some of the same properties in it as accomplished Max. We have seen nice Shield gains 16:30 nice plant Health from both of these products and they're purely for stress mitigation. And that's interesting because in the old days and I'm not talking that long ago. I'm talking like 16:41 five maybe ten years ago, you put out herbicide and Fungicide and fertility help. That's it. 16:49 Now you're using five things. Pgrs, and stress mitigation products using as many product using as many products now as we 16:58 used to and none of them are even repetitive. No, you're right. I mean every time I go across the field, there's probably at least a half a dozen things. There's eight or nine things in our inference. 17:08 Yeah. All right our switch over to Corn. All right your corner your corn went in the ground and what things happen for preventing stress before it 17:17 happens on corn. So the inferomex of corn and beans is almost identical. Now there really isn't much fertility. You know, 17:25 the the accomplished Max is there Mega grow or radiate is there the the liberate CA from agril liquid is the 17:35 calcium Source we have the zinc product is there you know, all those things are are in there. We we put a we put 17:44 an insecticide in Furrow on corn to protect the roots. We we've gone away from triple stack corn and we will plan a conventional corn or 17:53 just a double stack corn depending on the number even in a corn on corn scenario and we always apply insecticide dear listener. 18:00 If you're wanting to dig a Little Deeper on that subject. We we talked about it and then passed episodes. 18:06 Triple stack quad track quad stack corn it became a really big thing of the seed companies loved it and they pushed it and they charged what $70 more a bag hundred dollars more back. Okay, and Kelly's 18:16 point in a past recording was and I'm gonna revisit this because I think it's important in case you don't remember that episode. Said I think that the bang for the buck is not there. It was it 18:27 was 15 20 years ago whenever they came out of this 50. It was like man this stuff's amazing and some of the bang for 18:33 the buckets just not there. So they've gone back at GLC to a less a less 18:40 expensive conventional corn and then you just make up Fort Worth a little bit five dollars here of other treatment like the insects. Yes. I think the insecticide this year. We just looked 18:49 at it's like seven dollars and 30 cents an acre our trials from 21 showed that 18:55 a conventional corn or corn with less traits. Plus the insecticide was $10 an acre cheaper to put in than the triple stack 19:05 than the root room corn, but it was 18 bushel better side by side. 19:10 All right, so and you give us that time planning now, there's another thing about stress. We used to think that soybeans always got planted way after corn and then 19:18 things started changing hell you went out and planted soybeans like in February or March once and we've learned that soybeans can 19:24 handle hanging around and wet Cold Soil better than we ever thought but corn really can't so are you 19:31 concerned that your corn is going to stressed out by being in soil that got cold and stayed wet for a while and versus replanting 19:38 it maybe there's a few things you could have done to have given the Boost it needed. 19:43 We believe the corn that we already have planted. I think we've got 1140 or 50 acres planted. We believe that that Court will be fine. You know, 19:50 if it did get down to 25 a couple nights after we planted it for a it was a few days later if the growing Point had been above the 19:59 ground. Yeah, I would have froze off and killed it but it's still below the ground. It's got this stress mitigation factors it germinated 20:05 in warm soil. It's an earlier variety of corn 105 108 day corn and because of that 20:13 Because it's a hundred five hundred and eight day corn. It's it, you know it the genetics of it or the the 20:19 Vigor of it. If you will is more of a northern geography. So we believe it is a stouter variety, 20:26 you know, it's got more cold tolerance because of that also this year, you know, we've done this a little bit in the past this year. We did 20:32 it with everything. We sent corn off to Iowa State and we had a cold German. so 20:38 your your seed corn companies are going to advertise 95% germination and that's true, but they're using warm water to 20:45 do that Evans sent off a sample. I think it's a pound of every variety Iowa State put takes it to the lab puts it in the refrigerator for nine or ten days, 20:54 and then they germ it and it can't some of it came back as high as 98 percent. Some of it came back as low as 63 21:00 pounds. Cool. How cold How cold do they germ it at? I believe it's like 34-35 degrees, but I'm not certain of that. I actually my own frankly really damn 21:10 cold really damn cold. Thank you like where you don't really want to be. It's a good point right there. So part of stress mitigation before it happens is making sure you have the the right seed 21:21 for your class. Yeah, so, you know I planted corn that that germinated in at 98% the corn that was lower than that. We 21:29 have a plan. Yeah, hold off until the corn we sent back. Right because it wasn't gonna work. It was it's not good enough. Yeah. 21:38 So the big point there is, you know, there's this there's that discussion among seed and we mean this little departure from the departure from 21:48 the Stress mitigation but the point is there's always this thing that seed companies talk a great length about how different there's this from 21:57 the next to the next and sometimes you and I call BS on that like, I don't know if it's all that different but there really is something about that right there. If 22:03 you got something that can germinate cold and 98% and another one that germinates it what 60% is exactly. 22:09 Exactly Damien. There was even one number of corn. We had three different Pro boxes of the Corn three different lot numbers and it varied from 93-88 and 22:20 81 same same hybrid of corn that's different lot it well and as expensive it is if you're getting 81% germ versus 93, that's that's a 22:30 lot of plants exactly this really smart dude that I know from place from Iowa told me once that to get a great yield. You want six tenths 22:40 of a pound of corn per stock. That's right. So you can't go out there and have only 81% germination at 0.6 pounds to get what you want. 22:50 What dude? Who was that? Dude? He's a good looking guy too. All right, let's talk about what you're doing. Then mid-season things 22:56 get hot things get nasty. What are you doing to prevent stress on your corn plants when it starts getting hot and nasty so it'll 23:03 be again. It'll be much the same as the soybeans when we go across at that post-cam pass probably gonna be a carbon product 23:09 in there a sulfur product in there a micro pack in there. Definitely. There'll be some calcium in there, you know, the liberate product we talked about there's gonna 23:18 be, you know, make a girl or radiate will be in there. The pgr is this stuff going down at the soil level we're going on full here. 23:24 What's going on for you? When you when we go? Yeah, then the shield X product or the terrible product. 23:33 All right. So those go on all that's foliar. Yes, and then and almost everything you just said there there's a little bit of fertility, but the rest of it really is 23:43 about stress mitigation. It's about nutritional imbalance. That's the fertility and then stress mitigation. 23:50 What the carbon you mean a sugar? No, it'll be a probably it'll be a full Victor humic acid is what it will be. 23:59 And I don't see a lot of response from sugar here like Kevin and Chad and Matt do but we do with the 24:06 human can pull the acid. We do see a response you're trying to bring that trying to have that carbon the nitrogen 24:12 ratio when they're at that seven to one spot. Yeah. Chad Chad loves putting sugar on crops, but you don't do it. Yes, you know, 24:21 I different soil different biology is what I should would suppose those guys see great things out of sugar. We say great things 24:27 out of the human can fully but we just don't see as much other sugar and I'm not sure why 24:31 Toward the very end. When a lot of people, you know thing. It's time to go to County Fair time time to go to the beach, you know, take some time and and don't do anything. They're still stress factors 24:41 out there. What's the last thing you do that you think others could do to send that crop home stress free. 24:52 at VT when the tassels coming out we will decide then is the ziway holding or do we need to make another fungicide pass we may or may 25:02 not but we will go back out. We'll put out another pgr at that time and that pgr is energized pgrs are hormones. You need certain hormones that 25:11 vegetative you need certain hormones that reproductive. So energize will go out corn and beans both. 25:18 Energizer will go out. There will be another application of either Shield decks or terramar. 25:25 And at this time there will probably there will be micronutrients. And at this time there will be a foliar application of potassium and 25:31 you're doing this on both crops. Yes. Okay, this will happen at BT and it'll happen again at R5. Okay, and an interesting thing then you made 25:42 it a big objective for 2022 to reduce stress and you probably learn something last year. So this thing we talked about the last past that to prevent stress 25:52 is that And an amendment from what you had done last year because you learned something you saw a result or a bump. I mean in 26:00 other words the thing you're gonna do last past this year. Is it very from what 2022 was it will a little bit last year. 26:06 We had that VT pass kind of dialed in we thought okay and we are finding especially in soybeans. We're pushing the fertility later 26:14 and later like the potassium the micros things like that. And now last year we we because of Kevin we played around with in both crops 26:23 with an R5 Pass, which is very late and and we're gonna put we'll put more fertility on there because we saw a great things Temple even at R5 puts on the pgr like energized. 26:33 He'll put it on again and we're gonna that'll be something new this year that we're gonna try that. 26:38 You said because of Kevin I want to say something else. I think it was with him and you when we did a recording about something separate. I think 26:44 it was him that brought it up. But I want you to revisit the same subject using plant growth Regulators as stress mitigation 26:51 is something that we never thought about and now it's become almost standard practice or is standard practice for you. I believe 26:57 it was Kevin point out but the kind of plant growth regulator you use there's some that are good for vegetative stage and 27:04 some that are good for Reproductive stage. That's a big thing. And that's something you probably learned as well. Absolutely. It's very 27:10 important right product at the right time. Because some some Planet players Regulators doesn't mean that they're if they're good, even if it's good for soybeans, but 27:20 not it's reproductive phase more on its vegetative phase right? You wouldn't want to put Mega grow on in a reproductive 27:26 face. You wouldn't want to put energized on in a vegetative face. You need to know what product to use that right? What do I 27:33 know that other than trial and error? You need to work with a good retailer that can help educate you. I mean, is it become common knowledge that this is this is a you'll put this on but 27:41 only at this time versus that time is it become I mean, you know it because you've got you you're pretty much a Pioneer on this whole Space, you know, Lee Luber start using 27:50 player with Regulators you guys extreme AG did if I'm brand new to this besides listening to what you guys have to 27:57 say. I'm afraid that I might know more than my AG retailers cases. Well, I you know any grower that's 28:03 gonna be Progressive enough that wants to get into this space is gonna, you know, you shouldn't talk and absolutes but just about 28:10 any grower that wants to get into this space and start using plant growth regulators and be Progressive. They're probably 28:16 gonna be Progressive enough to ask the questions and to learn Big takeaway that you want to share now about the again. 28:23 This is like a journey for you is an objective in 2022. Now it's like you're you're overriding theme, you know, 28:32 like Edgar Allan Poe every piece of literature. He wrote had an overriding theme of he was a depressed alcoholic and it was kind of very very sad and you want to kill yourself after you read the book. 28:42 What's your overwriting? Get a little deep there for you. Anyway, what's your what's your what's your overriding theme that you think 28:50 is it is it stress mitigation. It seems like it is it's like you're when I think of stress mitigation I think of you. 28:58 I never want to crop to have a bad day. I want to break that state record of 442. I believe it's possible. Theoretically 29:04 I've obviously got a validate that but I want to raise the perfect crop. I want to raise the perfect plant and to do that. It's got to be nutritionally balanced. It's got 29:14 to have the stress off of it and it can never have a bad day. Yeah, preventing crop stress before him is a title of this 29:20 program and I think this this episode and I really believe that this is where it is you've talked about 29:26 fertility. We've probably gotten where we you know, we're we're probably there on fertility it uptake uptakes a biggie and I 29:36 mean I think uptake along with plant stress prevention are the two keys to these Mega yields. 29:43 Am I right? I think that we're there at fertility when we talk about NP and K, but People just want to push npnk especially in corn they want 29:52 to push nitrogen and it's all about these other these other things these other nutrients that we need to push to 29:58 achieve the balance to help with the stress too much nitrogen can cause disease too much nitrogen without enough too much nitrogen out of balance can cause disease 30:08 that's stress. All right, so I want to do a thing when we're gonna come back and revisit this topic come like November and say did it work because this 30:17 right now here we are spring your fourth planet and you're doing a lot of these things prevents drop stretch before it happens. We're gonna 30:24 see what the season brings you there might be some adjustments used to do you think you're still gonna be making adjustments? You've already mapped out? What's gonna happen? Do 30:30 you think come August you're gonna be still going back to the toolbox? I believe so and here every time I learn one thing Damien I learned team things. 30:38 I don't know. So then every time you learn something, yeah, there's a tweet that you mentioned we might still be going back to the toolbox. Come 30:44 come July August. And so then we're gonna revisit this subject. I'm gonna write it in my notes where we visit the subject after harvest and 30:50 say, all right, a big objective was preventing plant stress before it happens in 2023. 30:56 What what amendments did you have to make what changes and then what were the results? What did we learn? Yes, we learned. I 31:02 like it because you know, what here extreme AGG we're all about learning. If you want to learn an up your enough to 31:08 up your farming game.
