When it comes to cotton, getting calcium into the plant has always been a challenge for Matt Miles. His focus in this


 trial is to show more calcium in the plant at season end. 

00:00 Hi guys. I know it seems like we're rolling out a lot of cotton videos all of a sudden but this year we've reduced 00:06 our cotton acres to a little less than 600 acres. So there's a lot going on in a short amount of time. We're here 00:13 today in our Agri liquids plot. We have a lab in the rice, and we've got one in a cotton. 00:20 This lab's gonna consist of 40 acres with eventually before this thing's oh width will have four ten acre blocks of 00:29 different things. We're doing one being grower standard practice in three being different scenarios of chemicals that will 00:35 use through the cotton year to begin with though. We're starting with our infer right as a Planters running now, it's 00:41 gonna be 10 acres of grower standard practice, which is got a fertility products in it and our nematode root not nematode control 00:51 and our trip control for as a cotton comes up to keep trips off of it. So a little bit of fertility there the other 30 acres has these agril 01:01 liquid products piggyback on to our grower standard practice. So if y'all ever heard anything from Kelly gear 01:09 If you ever hear him talk anywhere. I really think the man has liberate calcium in his cereal every morning when he when he gets up. So liberate calcium. 01:19 That's that's a new buzzword with with some extreme AG with Kelly Garrett Kelly Garrett and dire needs of calcium. So we you know, 01:29 Molly and I talked about this. I really wanted to see calcium in our plot. 01:34 We tend to at the end, you know by the end of the season we get heavy bolo. I don't know that I've ever had a tissue sample 01:40 that has not been low in calcium. So that's what I'm looking for. I'm looking for a bolo tissue sample on Cotton that the calcium is that 01:50 sufficient to maybe above sufficient. So hopefully the liberate calcium is gonna be what does that so on 20 acres? We've got the liberate calcium microf500 and 02:01 fully and then on 10 acres. We pull the liberate calcium out then the last 10 acres will be growing standard practice without any 02:08 of these products. There will be more replications of the year goes on. That's one thing about a cotton lab is you know, we're going over 02:15 these fields multiple multiple times. So there's every kind of opportunity to put new, you know 02:22 new fertility or new products out. So stay with us through the season and we're going to hopefully show you what a good cotton crop looks like
