Maximize Your Sidedress Nitrogen Application

Posted by Elese Orrell

In this podcast, you'll hear from Dr. Fred Below, Professor of Crop Physiology at the University of Illinois, who discusses the role of weather in the nitrogen management of corn, the forms of nitrogen used by corn, and when to apply sidedress nitrogen to best meet corn nutrient needs.

Video Report: A Look at Accomplish LM from Nelson Farms in Almena, KS

Posted by Elese Orrell

In this video report from summer 2013, we visit corn fields at Nelson Farms in Almeda, Kansas to observe the effects of Accomplish LM in a starter program.

In the Nelson Farms trials, Accomplish LM was applied at one, two, or three quarts per acre with the grower’s standard practice (GSP) of 10-34-0 applied at eight gallons per acre in furrow.

Alfalfa Growers Benefit from Accomplish LM and Titan PBA

Posted by Elese Orrell

Alfalfa can require high rates of phosphate and potash fertilizer for establishment and growth. One way that growers can increase the efficiency of P and K fertilizers is to add biochemical technologies to their plant nutrition programs. Accomplish LM and Titan PBA are biochemical fertilizer catalysts that can accelerate nutrient mineralization and uptake.

Two trials conducted by Crop Production Services (CPS) in Central Oregon in 2013 show the difference Accomplish LM and Titan PBA can make in irrigated alfalfa programs.

Use Titan PBA to Improve Your Dry Fertilizer Program

Posted by Elese Orrell

Our partners at Crop Production Services work to get Titan PBA applied to the dry fertilizer that they spread, and for good reason: Titan PBA makes good fertilizers even better. Take a look at the yields from these soybean and corn field trials from 2013.

This soybean trial, conducted in Central Iowa, showed an 11.1 bushel per acre increase when Titan PBA was added to the grower’s standard P & K blend.

Report: A Look at Titan PBA from Rocking Z Acres in Wessington, SD

Posted by Elese Orrell

On a trip last year to visit the soybean fields at Rocking Z Acres in Wessington, South Dakota, Agricen's Nathan Cross strapped on a GoPro camera and headed into the field to examine how a starter application of Titan PBA is working at the farm.

Joined by grower BJ McNeil and agronomist Jason Schley, Nathan, BJ and Jason compare the root systems of soybean plants treated with Titan PBA against untreated plants.

Understanding Starter Fertilizer Programs

Posted by Elese Orrell

In this short video, Steve Sexton and Dr. Brian Cornelious of Agricen discuss the use of starter fertilizer, the importance of phosphorous for early plant growth, and the need make sure nutrient availability and uptake are optimized for maximum starter program impact. Watch the video below:

Creating a Better Strip-Till Program

Posted by Elese Orrell

Strip-till banding and root zone banding (RZB) allow growers to apply plant nutrition in a band in the tilled zone while leaving residue undisturbed for soil and moisture conservation purposes. Strip-till is common in Central and Western states—such as Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska, and Oklahoma—where the climate is more arid and there is less rainfall compared to the Central Corn Belt.

Operation Once in a Lifetime

Posted by Elese Orrell

Headquartered not far from Agricen here in Texas, Operation Once in a Lifetime is a fantastic non-profit group that provides financial and morale support to U.S. service members, veterans, and their families.

We were proud to sponsor this organization in making two wishes come true for a soldier with stage IV cancer: a trip to New York City to participate in the opening NASDAQ bell ringing, and a surprise vacation for his family to Hawaii. You can watch the video here:

Growing a Better Soybean Crop in a Corn-Soybean Rotation

Posted by Elese Orrell

As we have previously shown, Accomplish LM can be used to help release and mineralize nutrients in high residue fields. Given the high potassium levels in corn stover and the high potassium demand for a soybean crop, this is a perfect situation for using a residue application of Accomplish LM to improve plant performance (Figures 1-3) and gain a yield advantage in the coming soybean crop (Figure 4).
