Just like anything in life, we feel there are many ways to thrive in today’s ag economy. Even when things don’t necessarily go the way we had anticipated, there is always a way to bounce back. Sometimes the solution to our said “problems” could lie within the simplest of changes.
Have you considered banding and/or split applying nutrients?
The benefits of banding and split applying nutrients are many, but we’re not the only ones to notice. For the last two decades corn/soybean grower Dennis Werner, of Valparaiso, Indiana, has steadily improved his farm yields while beating county averages.
He found that proper placement and proper timing reduced nutrient tie-up in the soil and nutrient loss due to leaching. This then allows for lower usage rates while maintaining or improving yields. Werner, who farms alongside his brother, will be sharing their cropping and fertility system and the changes they’ve seen in their soils, as well as yield results they’ve obtained, at our upcoming seminar.
Could this be a key to profitability for 2015?
