Harvest is underway

This picture.

harvest-2016

This picture illuminates everything I love about fall. My farmer. My dog. Fresh picked butternut squash. Corn ready to be picked. Crisp weather. I could go on, but I won’t bore you with every single little detail we love about fall😉

In a perfect world, this picture is what every farm family looks like the night before harvest. One last family dinner followed by some time of just being together before all the craziness starts. This picture illuminates the excitement of another bountiful crop. I mean even Molly (our dog) is smiling!

And so it begins. Harvest 2016.

From our farm family to yours, we wish you a very safe and bountiful harvest season!

Biological Farming Seminar: Residue Management & Fall Fertility Programs

Field residue. It can be abundant, especially after a big harvest. It can deplete the nitrogen in the soil affecting next year’s crop. But did you know there’s something you can do right now to set the table for next year’s crop? Something as simple as turning a yield-robbing liability into a yield-enhancing asset. That’s right: a yield-enhancing asset.

At our upcoming seminar & field day agronomists Ken Musselman and Gary Campbell with share residue management techniques that have been proven to work throughout the United States. They will discuss everything that goes into proper residue management – biologicals, appropriate tillage, timing, cover crops, and crop rotation.

Why are most of these fields covered in snow while some portions aren’t frozen? Could proper residue management be the reason? Find out on September 8!

Both Ken and Gary have been with AgriEnergy Resources for 25+ years. They have helped growers all over the United States come up with fertility programs that fit their specific needs on any crop, any soil, anywhere. With the right residue management program, they’ve seen improved seedbeds and increased crop yields.

The duo will share tips to help you prepare for winter so you can jump out of the gate strong next spring.

Biological Farming Seminar: Organic & Conventional Products for Plant Protection

Compared to just 5 years ago, modern-day plant protection is off the charts with exciting new advances. Especially for Lance Beem of Beem Agro-Sciences & Beem Consulting. After eating what appeared to be a harmless watermelon that nearly killed him, Beem knew something had to change in terms of plant protection. With over 36 years of experience in the plant protection industry, he is intimately familiar with synthetic chemistry.

sLance-Beem

Through Beem Consulting, Lance Beem offers consulting and contract research focused on the development of new pesticides, fertilizers, natural products, and safe compounds.

Today, he combines clean and safe compounds that ward off pests and diseases in all crops. His focus is to integrate conventional and non-conventional plant regulation, nutrition, and pest management practices for large and small farmers. His new discoveries of natural biological complexes have lead to greater crop yields and sustainable soil health. In fact, an independent research study shows the use of his product, ISO, has increased yields on the following crops:

  • Cantaloupe 23%
  • Blueberry 41%
  • Cotton 13%
  • Corn 26%
  • Alfalfa 20%
  • Soybeans are still growing. No yield numbers yet, but there are 3 times the amount of root nodules.

Biological Farming Seminar: Impacts of Antioxidants & Polyamines in Crop Production

“I invite you to share my passion for the plant sciences. Especially the application of scientific discoveries in plant growth and development. Let new understanding challenge and refine traditional beliefs.” 

dick_woodward_2015.05.20

Dick Woodward is currently the Director of International at Stoller Enterprises.

That’s how Dick Woodward, of Stoller Enterprises, plans on opening his discussion on the impacts of antioxidants and polyamines in crop production at our upcoming seminar. We’ve all heard how healthful antioxidants gleaned from essential vitamins and fresh foods can help the human body ward off disease, but are you familiar with the role antioxidants play in plant health?

Through proper management of antioxidants and polyamines (plant growth regulators), Woodward believes one can improve overall plant health by decreasing stress, diseases, and pests. He will explain how polyamines can act as chelating agents to help mitigate the impact of plant stress on overall growth.

Dick Woodward has more than 15 years of experience with Stoller Enterprises, serving in research and development, regulatory compliance, sales, technical training, and technology transfer. His academic training [Bachelor’s {Millersville}, Master’s (USF) and PhD (PSU)] focused on the plant sciences of Physiology, Agronomy, Microbiology, and Plant Pathology in both temperate and tropical climates.

Our Biological Farming Seminar & Field Day will take place from 9:00am-5:00pm Thursday, September 8 at Wise Guys Bar & Grill, 2205 N. Main St., Princeton, Illinois. Reserve your spot by calling 815-872-1190 or emailing info@agrienergy.net. A complimentary lunch will be provided for those that RSVP by August 31st. For more information, click here.
