What if by simply changing nitrogen management practices, growers could save input dollars and increase the volume and quality of the crops they grow? It may sound too good to be true; however, simple plant physiology suggests these benefits can be accrued by growers virtually every year, with every crop they grow, by disciplined use of nitrogen inputs. #AgSpectrum #MaximumFarming
Seeing this testimonial from one of our many independent dealers says a lot about how we help our customers look beyond just applying more fertilizer. Sometimes, less can mean more. We help our dealers help their customers look deeper.
This was really neat to witness the other day. I guess you could say it was one of those moments where the proverbial student becomes the teacher? So what is going on here? First let me set the stage: The weather is really nice and I show up to simply drop off 2020 yield reports. There are already lots of outside jobs taking place on the farm and I do NOT like holding anyone up from progressive work. But when I say I’ll drop it off; Garrett says “Hold on, I’ll be back from the field in a few minutes and let’s look over the reports.” When he arrives he also grabs Brett, an awesome employee, and says, “you should see this too.” So I start going through it and Garrett takes over to explain the findings. He does a great job showing what factors are affecting yield. Especially what nutrients correlate to yield! It is really cool to see this because he is teaching other members of his team not only what they are doing; but WHY and HOW! Helping lay out the vision so everyone is on same page and more of a sense of ownership. Thank you very much for allowing me to experience this opportunity.

Ultimately, growers need to understand that the optimal approach to carbon management will be farm specific. The availability of different inputs as well as seasonal norms for precipitation and temperature will largely determine which carbon management tools will be most cost effective for any given farm. #AgSpectrum #MaximumFarming
Too often, conventional growers make the mistake of thinking that “if a little bit is good, more will be better.” However, that type of thinking not only leads to wasted input dollars, it can also lead to unwanted changes in soil quality that negatively impact crop productivity. #AgSpectrum #MaximumFarming
