Now that new herbicides for dicamba-tolerant crops are registered, growers and applicators need to learn and follow a whole new set of rules to apply them correctly and not damage nearby fields. Training is key, and we provide links to on-line product labels and stewardship training as well as videos that describe factors for successful application, including avoiding temperature inversions.
From nozzles to machine speed, boom height and the importance of cleaning, experts give advice on how to prepare and operate your sprayer for effective and safe application.
New corn fertilization research shows ways to fine-tune application timing so more nitrogen goes and stays where it needs to be—in the plant.
AGCO equipment has long been known for practicality and innovation, not to mention durability, versatility and efficiency. This issue features all that and more in articles about the RoGator AirMax™ 180 and the White Planters™ 9800VE. In “Prescriptions Require Precision,” we detail how to meet new standards for class-leading, accurate application of dry fertilizer with the AirMax 180, the only pneumatic spreader paired with a high-clearance row-crop chassis. “High-Speed, Precision Planting with the White Planters 9800VE” and the related walk-around video explain and show the benefits of being able to plant at speeds up to 10 mph, while maintaining accurate seed placement with the 9800VE equipped with Speed Tube.
In this and every issue of Performance Agronomy, we bring news from the AGCO Crop Tour Program, which includes demonstrations on how to best prepare a seedbed, planning for in-season nitrogen testing and the how-tos of high-speed planting.
