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. You’re not going to want to miss this session at our Biological Farming Seminar & Field Day scheduled from 9:00am-5:00pm Thursday, September 8 at Wise Guys Bar & Grill, 2205 N. Main St., Princeton, Illinois.

Biological Farming Seminar: New Product Launch

This has been one rewarding summer as we’ve been testing new product combinations all throughout the Midwest and up through the east coast. Over and over, we’ve seen these products work right before our very own eyes! Some growers can hardly believe it’s the same field. So what gives? What makes these products so great? Are farmers really that excited?

Weather Wednesday 8/24/16

The weather has been insane today. One of the big maple’s on the property got struck by lightning either late last night or the wee hours of the morning. Needless to say, today has been crazy hectic trying to get our internet back up and the mess cleaned up. But we did it and most everything is back up and running smoothly!

So, without further ado, here’s your weekly weather report:

Ken Mussleman: Northeast Iowa continues to get adequate to excessive rains. There’s quite a bit of SDS showing up in bean fields. With the frequent rain showers, it’s difficult to make hay. In Bureau and Henry County, Illinois there’s some wind damage and ponding water. They both had 2.5-3.5 inches of rain overnight. Beans are lodged from excessive moisture.

Gary Campbell: In Michigan, what used to be dry for most of the summer, is now very wet. Several growers report 8-10″ over the past 3 weeks, with localized patches of over 5″ last weekend. The crops are moving toward maturity, and overall, looking good.

Eric Johnston: This past week has brought a good amount of moisture with different rain events happening throughout Northern Illinois.  This morning we received a nice shower – looks like we got around ¾ inch.

And with that, here’s to another week of watching your crops mature!

SP-1 & organic starter: a powerful duo

The combination of SP-1 and an organic starter is proving to be powerful in corn, yet again. While on a field visit in Central Wisconsin in mid-August, one of our sales agronomists made the following observations.

Gary's roots edited

 

The combination of SP-1 and the organic starter, which includes Dramm EK-Sulfate, and micronutrients, was applied at planting. Note, the treated set has a larger root system as compared to the untreated plants. Treated plants also had more mature ears that are filled out through the tip.

Like what you see and want to add some SP-1 and other products to your program yet this fall? We have some major discounts going on. Dramm fish products have a 15% cash discount and all other products have a 10% cash discount when paid within 10 days of invoicing. Click here for more information.

Weather Wednesday 8/17

It has been absolutely crazy in terms of weather this last week.

I had the opportunity to go the Illinois State Fair this past week helping my family with our show cattle this past weekend. Little did we know what was about to happen as we entered the ring to compete for Champion Angus Friday evening. A loud clap of thunder, followed by blackness and a torrential downpour. Within 10 minutes, the show got postponed and the fairgrounds were flooded. Never seen anything like it! Show supplies were floating out of the barn, power cords were under water, campers and trucks were nearly submerged. Complete chaos. It was a miracle no one was injured and all the cattle were okay. Talk about an exciting start to the Illinois State Fair. See the pics here.

Thankfully the rest of the Midwest didn’t see as much rain. Here’s a look at what our sales agronomists have been seeing this past week:

Ken Musselman: This week I’ve been traveling in Southeast Iowa through Northern Missouri, and on into Northeast Kansas. For the most part, they all were very dry in June and have gotten adequate to excess moisture since then. This week has been cooler; a welcome relief after all the hot weather. Crops are looking good, and some corn is within 2 weeks of maturity.

Mike Wyatt: Weather in Western Nebraska is very normal. Isolated thunder storms pop up in the late evenings. Hailed on one pivot of corn last night. Day temps are in the nineties, night temps are getting down into the upper fifties. That is usually a sign of seasonal change starting. We will need good rains for wheat drilling in mid-September.

Gary CampbellEastern and Central Wisconsin have been getting timely rains. The crops look very good and hay has been growing. Drier parts of Ohio and Michigan have received some rain in the past week, but need more.

Ray Roettger: We’ve had rain about everyday in Southern Indiana and Southern Illinois. It’s also been hot and wet. Northern Indiana has been on the dry side, but now has adequate moisture and crops are growing well. Central New York hasn’t had much rain, although they did receive some rain which has really helped the crops recover.

And with that, here’s to another week of watching your crops grow!

Weather Wednesday 8/10/16

It’s been pretty warm here in North Central Illinois, and for the most part, crops are looking good. There’s a few thunderstorms in the forecast within the next week so we may get some good rains. We shall see.

Here’s a look at what our sales agronomists are seeing around the Midwest this week:

Gary Campbell: Northern Ohio continues to be very dry and corn is showing visible stress. A few areas received showers last weekend, but not nearly enough. Central Wisconsin through Minnesota are completely opposite – they’re very wet after getting several inches last week, which has taken a toll on the edible bean crop.

Eric Johnston: It has been hot and not much rain since last week in Northern Illinois. A few places received a small amount, while other places didn’t receive any. A rainfall would be welcomed in most of Northern Illinois.

Ken Musselman: Northwest Indiana is very dry and crops are showing stress, especially on lighter soils. Some fields have only received 4 inches of rain since planting. Northeast Illinois is getting on the dry side after excessive late June and early July rains.

Mike Wyatt: The weather in Southwest Nebraska is very typical. Hot days in the nineties, nights in the upper sixties. Thunder storms build in the late afternoons. We have had enough moisture that the crops are in good condition. Rain amounts the last week were .85 inches over a small area.

Ray Roettger: The weather in Southern Indiana has been hot with plenty of moisture, however there is a dry area in Wayne County. Southern Missouri has adequate moisture in most areas.

And with that, here’s to another week of watching your crops grow!
