How to Thrive in Today’s Ag Economy: Manage Nitrogen

I don’t think anyone would argue with us when we say one of the keys to any successful grain operation lies within nitrogen management.

Our nitrogen management has never been more important than it is today. Whether we are protecting our budgets or protecting our drinking water, the same principles and practices are at play.

This field yielded over 200-bushel corn with only 35 pounds of added nitrogen thanks to biologicals, residue management, wise tillage, and cover crops.

Though it can be difficult to manage just so, we do our best to help farmers manage their nitrogen based on what we’ve seen in over 25 years of experience.

Our general manager Dean Craine will be sharing tips on managing nitrogen at our upcoming seminar. He will also discuss ways to improve microbial nitrogen cycling. Did you know applying nitrogen when the plant needs it could improve yields and nitrogen use efficiency?

Craine has been actively engaged in biological farming since 1982 when he began working with our founder, Dave Larson. Prior to being named general manager in 2001, he planned biological soil fertility programs as part of our agronomy sales team.

If nitrogen management trips you up, then Craine is your guy.

Our seminar “How to Thrive in Today’s Ag Economy – 10 Practical, Profitable Solutions” is scheduled from 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Thursday, January 29 at the Chateau Hotel & Conference Center in Bloomington, Illinois. For more information, click here or call (815) 872-1190 to reserve a spot.
