Chad Henderson makes a visit across the border to learn a little more about farming in Canada with Sam Coutu. They talk corn stand and population.

00:00 Hey y'all, this is Chad Henderson with Extreme Ag and I'm here with Sam, the man, the Big Sam, I call him. He is, got all kind of names. 00:07 So we're up here looking at some of Sam's corn and you know, everybody checks corn differently on what they're looking for or what they 00:12 ain't. Um, me, I'm looking for something that is, that most people aint all the time, you know, but, you know, we always just, I kind of just lean back on corn, you know, and see how, 00:21 what kind of plant structure we got and it, and you know, a lot of that is, is variety. We know that. But when, even with Sam, 00:28 when his other variety over here, and he talks about, you know, we're, we're in a 85 day corn here and, and he's talking about 88. 00:34 We're talking about 88, and he talks about like, Hey, I'm pushing the envelope with a 93 or a 95, you know, and, and that's the things we're talking about here is, 00:42 and you can look at the plant structure on this and how it, how it leans and gives and, you know, and it come back up. So, you know, 00:49 that matters. This, this plant, he planted us in here, 37.5, you know, and we're on edges field, we just come outta the in rows, 00:56 but it's here 37 5 and it's still that good of a plant, you know? Yeah. We can expect that at 28 or 30,000. But, 01:03 but that just tells you this was in Alfalfa before. Had two tunnel litter on it, then had, had, he said that, 01:09 he said this is some of the better ground that she got. So is, uh, pretty heavy ground. They restructure. Uh, it's, it's the first year. 01:20 Really? Yeah, it's the first year out of I custom 4:00 AM year. Yeah. But it's the first year I will, I do business with him. 01:28 So I share ground this year with the people. Yeah. So This absolutely killing me to shook all this back. I told Sam, I said, I'm gonna come out here and I said, you're gonna kill me for this, you know, 01:41 but, um, anyway, what we're looking at here is that, um, Sam's population on this is 37 5, and I was like, oh my lord. You know, 01:51 you come from the South and just as to understand what we're learning in extreme ag from different peoples, from different areas, you know, 01:58 is as you never know how, what something is working for somebody else. You know, people talking about, well, well, well, you know, I appreciate you sharing this. 02:05 Well, every time we talk to somebody, we learn way more from everybody else than you learn from, you know, you feel like you're giving to somebody. So, you know, 02:14 if we was at 37.5 here at home and it's dry land, like we wouldn't even make an ear. Like we wouldn't even make an ear. But that's what I told, told Sam. I was like, man, 02:23 I'd love to see this field right here as 32 at 30,028. Like Kevin Matthews on the back, five hollering, high five, high five, you know, he's the same way as I am, but Sam's like, Hey, you know, it's good fertility. 02:34 We'll plant it at 37.5. It's not irrigated. Like, it's just good ground. And I'm like, man, I just can't believe that. So, you know, 02:41 we always learn a lot here at extreme Ag. We're learning from each other and we're learning from people across the country, you know, and, and nobody, you know, 02:47 to think that everybody has somebody has all the answers. I mean, you're wrong. You're just absolutely wrong. I mean, there's no silver bullet, 02:54 there's no one way of doing things. And here's Sam's up here, 37, 5, all my irrigated, his planted at 36,000 down there. And you know, 03:04 he's made it all the way the end and he just gotta finish her up. So just a report here from Big Sam talking about what's up 03:13 the.
