  • Season-long Corn Nitrogen Management

    Season-long Corn Nitrogen Management

    Nitrogen is one of the most important nutrients that corn needs to thrive. A lack of nitrogen availability at key points throughout the season can be costly when it comes to bushels in the bin. A season-long nitrogen management program can improve efficiency, increase yields and help to reduce agriculture's environmental footprint.

  • Farming Begins in the Soil

    Farming Begins in the Soil

    We can make a lot of input decisions that impact yield - what seed we'll use, how much fertilizer we'll put down - but at the end of the day, a crop can only be as successful as the foundation we give it. By measuring the quality and composition of chemical, biological and physical elements, soil tests are able to determine which categories are being met and which can be improved upon.

    Kicking the Tires on New Technologies

    Products can spend years in the lab and undergoing field research before they are ready for farmer use. But even after all of the time and labor that goes into research and development, new products still aren’t ready for your farm until a third party can 'kick the tires' through in-field trials and testing.

    Converting Nitrogen to Bushels: Two Factors Keeping Crops from Productivity

    There are two primary factors that lead to increased plant vigor, growth and productivity - carbon fixation by stimulating photosynthesis and nitrogen (N) uptake and utilization.

    The Many Intricacies of Managing Phosphorus

    Phosphorus + micronutrients = well-balanced nutrient management. But, there are many intricacies involved with managing phosphorus (P) for optimum crop uptake and increased return on investment.

    ROI: Running the Numbers on Profitability

    Seeds are planted. Crops are harvested. Money comes in and money goes out. It's the terrestrial rhythm of a farming enterprise. At the end of the day, you want and need more of that coinage to wind up in your hands than leaves them.

  • Nitrogen Managers Applied Via Center-Pivot Irrigation Yields Return on Corn

    Nitrogen Managers Applied Via Center-Pivot Irrigation Yields Return on Corn

    Four years of research by the Irrigation Research Foundation confirms corn yield increases of 10 Bu./A or greater when nitrogen managers or stabilizers are applied through irrigation systems.
