What sets bumper fields apart from the low yielding neighbors?  It’s crop protection during pod set. Were you one of the thousands of Midwest and North Central growers who filled out soybean production Yield Gap Survey1 between 2014 and 2017? If so you might remember being asked......

What is in Fortalis, actually? Plant Impact’s FortalisTM for soybeans, cotton, peanuts, and alfalfa is a product that acts as a crop enhancer by mobilizing calcium. It improves yields by enhancing  the movement of calcium. Growers apply it over the top at early reproductive stages......

Wouldn’t you adopt a technology that both increased alfalfa yield and improved quality of the forage?  Learning to manage calcium should become part of your alfalfa management plan for this reason. Alfalfa is a forage crop grown across the U.S. as high value and protein......

Its mid-March and most growers are still locked in winter. It will take some time for snow to melt and soils to warm and be in condition for planting. Makes me wonder how many soybeans will be planted ‘early’ this spring, especially since ‘early’ is......

Will biostimulants be the next ticket to a higher yield? There is a lot of press about biostimulants today and the number of products and companies marketing them continues to expand. It is getting more and more difficult to see through all the haze that......

And here we go again, time to make your 2019 soybean production plans. The season is over, the soybean crop is out, and, if you are like most producers, yields were higher than normal and probably exceeded expectations. Not all seasons are like that, however,......

Dan Davidson, Agronomist PhD, CPAg, CCA Managing calcium improved alfalfa yield based on a pilot study conducted on our farm in Northeast Nebraska. While alfalfa provides its own nitrogen, good producers know that to harvest high yields, they must apply phosphate, potassium and sulfur annually.......

Dan Davidson, Agronomist PhD, CPAg, CCA When making that seed order, many things dictate which varieties to plant, including your soils, weed control challenges, and management style. You’ve probably been making variety decisions for some time now and feel comfortable doing so, relying on the......

Dan Davidson, Agronomist PhD, CPAg, CCA Is it good for yields or a challenge for harvest when crops have stay-green characteristics? One of the things growers have learned about high-yield corn production is that keeping foliage greener for longer improves overall plant health, stalk integrity......

Dan Davidson, Agronomist PhD, CPAg, CCA Harvest timing can have a huge impact on soybean yield, shatter losses and storability. Field losses, splits and cracked seed coats increase as moisture content decreases. A 13%-13.5% moisture content is optimal for preventing mechanical damage. Harvesting during high......
