What Is Next For Temple's Milo?
25 Sep 235 min 17 sec

Temple's Milo is in the late stages.  But he isn't done yet.  He talks about next steps to bring this crop home.

00:00 It's Temple Rays with the extreme mag. I got Tommy Rou from Nature's and I got Jason Warley from, from Nature's. We're standing back in this, uh, Milo Slap Milo. It's Milo. Milo, okay. 00:10 Milo Crop. I don't know nothing about it. This was a hundred percent. Um, this was a hundred percent uh, fertility by nature's on this deal. 00:18 So what we're looking at here is we're trying to figure out what the next stage is. So I was telling Tommy what, what I've done so far this year. 00:26 Of course we did a, we did um, you know, a wide drop pass, but it was more like a streamer bar pass that we did with the pen, uh, pen, 00:33 air stream tips. And then we came in with a drive fertility and then we put ionize on that. 'cause I was trying to drive some more fertility in it. 00:41 And then we've used your micross and your foliar feed, um, before that and you know, with the herbicide pass. 00:47 And then we've fed it twice since then. And actually yesterday I put on finish line, uh, triple option K fuel 00:57 First down. First and first down. Yeah. So it was the four products. So, and I kind of thought, you know, in my opinion, I, 01:03 that was one of two more passes is what I was thinking. And then you kind of looked at his first and you were like, you don't know if you do one more. And then Jason's saying, yep, do one more. 01:14 And So he's, this is simple. This is ace situation. I realized I was in air. This is a descendant situation. So what stage we have here, this is, 01:25 even though this is my lower of grain sorghum, this is almost like a corn ear. 'cause at this stage, if you, if you were looking at a corn ear, 01:34 you're starting to fill kernels, which at that time in a corn plant, you would want K phosphorus microbes to be 01:42 sending starch, sending sugars to fill these kernels. Right? So that there's, 01:48 that's no different than setting here looking at this grain sorghum crop. Now when we started talking about send it, 01:57 unfortunately all these heads are not the same, at the same growth stage. You have this head right here that is just, just finished pollinating. 02:08 You have some throughout the field that are just beginning to pollinate. Those are what we call suckers. So they're gonna be a little later. 02:16 So we're gonna come back in, you know, two, two and a half weeks and do the same thing. So we can fill those suckers. 02:25 But don't you think this head's gonna get some of that? It will, it we add weight here. That's correct. Don't wanna do 02:30 Eight weeks. That's correct. 'cause that's, that's where you get yield. You're not gonna get any more of these kernels than what we, on this head. 02:38 It's all about making wheat. So, so what else is there? I mean, it seems like a fairly deep, we just talked a minute ago, 02:47 like of course I background a few cattle and then you're telling me that I could cut this off and I could back ground cattle out here. And they love this too. 02:54 Like I, there's gotta be a negative. Tell me the negative. There Is, the only negative is that early in the season, uh, 03:03 aphids, low grain sorghum and that can really knock it back. But when you get to this stage, unless you got, you know, 03:11 hot dry conditions and you got grasshoppers, you got cornea worms that are out here tearing it up. There are really no negatives. And, and the fact that, 03:22 so Kansas, number one, growing state, Texas number two growing state, both of those states broke cattle. And you can cut, 03:30 you can cut this crop off, either turn the cattle in on it now, or you can, uh, run a wind roers through it and bale it up. 03:39 Or you can wait And if does frost, It does frost, it does winter. Maryland, you to foster it. The gets cold here By the water too. 03:49 Or you can wait until it does frost and then you can either silage it or turn cattle in here during the winter. There's 03:56 Multiple, it's a massive amount of biomass. Biomass here. There's a lot of biomass. And I mean, does this help, like in different situations, like what's, what sorting do to the ground? 04:09 'cause that a man tell me that there's two things that's really great for your, for your soil. One of them is to rotate sorghum into it. Milo, sorry, 04:18 Tommy. And the other thing is peanuts. And those two things make a massive amount of difference in the soil is they got something to do with the root knot. Um, nematode fix, 04:28 Say nematode was the big thing back. 'cause we would Say could do a lot of it for Otto rotation. 04:33 That's right. Really good for that. You know, and that when I heard that, I was like, now we're talking about a whole nother thing. You another way. Yeah. So, 04:44 you know, to me, you know, I've kind of got it though, but diverse crop here. The hardest part is with Sorghums from what I've seen, is like, 04:52 you gotta have a market. You know what I mean? It's, it's, it's specific on an area. Yeah. Whether you've got it or not. 05:00 If you've got a market for it and you've, and you can produce the yield on it, I mean by far it is a crop to look at and to consider, especially on double 05:07 Crop. Alright, well we learned a lot here today. We'll be back to you soon. Thanks guys.
