Read how growers can multiply the benefits of on-farm trials and increase return on investment. In collaborative research with universities, commodity groups and companies such as AGCO, producers glean data and recommendations faster and more accurately than solo efforts, all the while decreasing inputs and increasing yield.
“That will never work in my area.” Growers often say this when presented with the idea of raising high-yielding winter wheat, but it’s possible to realize a better harvest and greater return on investment. From genetics and seeding rates to optimum nutrition and pest control, read what crop specialists recommend for boosting the bottom line.
Because of its ability to be applied quickly, urea is a popular nitrogen source for topdressing and sidedressing. However, fertilizer quality, application equipment accuracy and weather conditionscan adversely affect whether the crop truly receives the fertilizer it needs, when it needs it. Read about the results from an Iowa State study that shows the agronomic advantages to using a pneumatic boom application, such as the AirMax®180.
When it comes to floaters, applicators who test-drove the new TerraGator®C Series say they saw gains in productivity, accuracy and more when treating fields. Read their reviews and more details about how the TerraGator’s improved features help provide excellent, affordable crop care.
Preliminary results from the third year of the AGCO Crop Tour are in from on-farm agronomic plots across the Midwest. This year’s plots confirmed previous best planting practices in terms of emergence and expected yield. Also, a new diagnostic tool—the SmartFirmer™ seed firmer from Precision Planting®—provided new insight in the furrow.
