The Great Benefits of Fall CN Application

Harvest is around the corner, and now is the time to make the decision on a fall fertilizer application. There are many benefits to applying fall CN, and this week we want to discuss them with you, our farmer-member.

  • Remember: Profitability always comes with good fertility.
  • YieldPro is the best way to manage fertilizer costs in your operation​.
  • Logistically, fall application generally works out better because there is greater flexibility and a less compressed time frame.

Watch this brief video to hear Tyler Kilfoil, YieldPro Specialist and agronomist Steve Dlugosz discuss the great benefits of fall fertilizer application.

Photo Friday: 2019 Answer Plot

DLM_8305

On Tuesday we hosted our 2019 Answer Plot event outside Pershing, IN. We were nervous about low attendance numbers going into the event because of the frustrating season we’ve had. “Would growers attend in good faith that we still have sound agronomic information to share with them?” we wondered.

They did.

We were pleased with the number of farmer-members who attended this annual event and the level of participation. There was tremendous questions, conversation, and insight. Harvest Land is proud to continue to offer this event to our members when so many attend to prove it’s ongoing value. We thank all who joined us for the day.

This week, we want to share photos from the event.

Setting Priorities in a Compressed Season

IMG_2937

A challenging fall, which wasn’t ideal for applying a fall burn down, has set us up for an interesting spring ahead. Make sure you’re doing your tillage prior to making an application.

Simple Fact: You can’t stay clean if you don’t start clean.

start clean stay clean

Watch as YieldPro Specialist Kyle Brooks visits with Glenn Longabaugh, Winfield United Regional Agronomist, regarding setting agronomic priorities in a compressed season. Glenn makes some excellent points about finding operational success this spring.

Managing High-Yield Soybeans

A few weeks ago we sat down with grower Gary Lawyer to discuss the success he had in managing high-yield soybeans in 2018. Gary offered insight into why he believes  2018 was his best year, yet.

  • Applying fungicide and insecticide worked tremendously for Lawyer and his plan is to follow the same protocol in 2019.
  • Timing is important: An extra trip later in the season to manage disease can truly pay.
  • “Get better before you get bigger, and this is the easiest way I’ve found to do that.” – Gary Lawyer

Click below to watch Agronomist Steve Dlugosz and YieldPro Specialist David Vansickle discuss the keys to success grower Gary Lawyer used in 2018 to manage high-yield soybeans, and the things he will do again in 2019. 

 

 

To back up this insight, below are yield numbers from the area we’re discussing:
