Do this now to improve next year’s crops

Dec 06, 2019

One of the biggest limiting factors in Tennessee crop and forage production is available potassium levels in the soil.  Aggregate data from thousands of soil samples submitted across the state reveal that over two thirds of production acres are low to very low in this essential macronutrient.   

Take time to update your field boundaries

Dec 03, 2019

Winter is a great time to make sure your field boundaries in your precision ag software are up-to-date and accurate. Having correct field boundaries plays an important role as the foundation to your precision program.

Herbicide-Tolerant Innovations for Soybeans

Nov 25, 2019

The soybean industry is experiencing another round of herbicide-tolerant innovation. For 13 years following its introduction in 1996, Round-up Ready (RR1) was the only traited product on the market, including the introduction of the improved Round-Ready to Yield (RR2). In 2009, Liberty Link (LL) ushered in a competing weed control system in the form of glufosiante tolerance.

Nov 11, 2019

As this year’s harvest season comes to a close, we’re getting our first glimpses of product performance. Every year, WinField® United’s Answer Plot® program generates thousands of data points across a wide spectrum of geographies and environments.  

Take the Fight to Weeds This Fall

Nov 04, 2019

Did you know fall is an excellent time for weed control? Weeds like buttercup, chickweed, henbit, deadnettle, and musk thistle germinate in the fall and remain dormant in a rosette stage until temperatures start to warm up in the spring. Applying herbicide now is ideal since the seeds are not well established. Once the weeds reach their flowering stage, control is much more difficult.  

Higher yields mean higher nutrient removal

Oct 28, 2019

The USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service predicts this year’s harvest will bring in record-setting yields for Tennessee corn and soybean producers. However, with those above-average yields come above-average nutrient removal from soils.   

Importance of Soil Sampling After Drought

Oct 21, 2019

Drought conditions can have a marked effect on your soil’s pH, nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K) fertility levels. Soil testing is the best tool to identify a drought’s impact on your acreage and provide information needed to create a nutrient management plan.

Increase your wheat crop’s yield potential with seed treatments

Oct 14, 2019

It has been said that 70 percent of a wheat crop’s yield potential has already been determined as soon as the seed is in the ground.  Why not give yourself a little extra insurance before planting with a seed treatment?
