Taking a “Feed the Plant” Approach to Growing High-Yield Corn

Posted by Agricen

With today’s corn genetics providing the potential to grow more than 300 bushels per acre, growers need a new take on crop management, particularly when it comes to soil fertility. Have 15 minutes? Hear Dr. Fred Below of the University of Illinois talk about how to move from a “feed the soil” to a “feed the plant” approach to high-yield corn fertility program.

Accomplish LM Raises Yield in High Moisture Corn Trial

Posted by Agricen

The results from this Accomplish LM trial in high-moisture corn are in. Using Accomplish LM with the grower's standard fertility program (GSP) led to a 6.9 bu/a yield advantage (dry weight) compared to the GSP alone. The trial, which was conducted in Hutchinson, Minnesota, used Accomplish LM at a rate of 2 pints per acre. Accomplish LM was applied at planting, and UAN 28% (8 gal/a) was then dribbled on top of the row behind the closing wheels with the planter. Twelve Accomplish LM-treated rows were compared to 12 rows that received UAN 28% without Accomplish LM. The corn was harvested at 34% moisture.

Titan XC Increases Corn Yield in Nebraska Trial

Posted by Agricen

In a Dyna-Gro corn plot harvested near Cozad, Nebraska, treating MicroEssentials SZ (MESZ) fertilizer with Titan XC led to a 14.4 bushel per acre increase in corn yield compared to untreated MESZ. The corn was harvested on September 20, 2017.

Grower Stories Video: Raising Soil Fertility & Crop Yields on Continuous Corn Acres

Posted by Agricen

For the past several years, Chris Perkins, a grower and Nutrien Ag Solutions location manager in Otwell, Indiana, has been running an experimental, high management, continuous corn plot using several products in the Loveland Products portfolio, including Accomplish LM and Titan, so that he can prove the value of the products he sells to his customers.

Many of the decisions that Chris makes in the management of his plot are driven by ongoing research at the university level, primarily that of Dr. Fred Below of the Crop Physiology Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

[Iowa Agribusiness Radio] How Accomplish Can Provide Positive Returns with Sidedress

Posted by Agricen

Iowa Agribusiness Radio Network spoke with Loveland Products' Scott Lay this week about making sidedress applications pay off with Accomplish LM

Iowa Agribusiness: Tell me about Accomplish LM.

Lay: Accomplish is a product we've had on the market for about 6 years. It's a fertilizer biocatalyst, which is a product that makes nutrients more available to the plant. It mineralizes nutrients that may otherwise be bound up in the soil, creating a better outcome or yield result in the crop. 

Iowa Agribusiness:Obviously farmers are going to have to put on more nitrogen this year. So this is a supplement to go along with that?

[RFD IL Radio] Getting the Full Value Out of Sidedress Nitrogen

Posted by Agricen

Scott Lay, Area Sales Manager with Loveland Products, was recently in Illinois to discuss sidedressing with RFD IL Radio NetworkBelow is an excerpt from their conversation about getting the full value out of a sidedress nitrogen application.

RFD: Given the wet weather we had earlier this year, is there a question of how much nitrogen growers need to put on their fields?

Lay: The number of additional units of nitrogen needed–if any–is based on the amount of precipitation and type of environmental conditions growers have experienced since planting. Today, we have a number of nitrogen modeling tools that we can use to help make this determination, which makes it more of an exact science than it has been in the past.

[Hoosier Ag Today] Making Sidedress Pay Off

Posted by Agricen

Now that growers finally have their corn and soybeans planted, many are considering adding more nitrogen to their fields. Loveland Products' Scott Lay recently spoke with Hoosier Ag Today about why sidedressing supplemental nitrogen is a positive practice.

Hoosier Ag Today: Our heavy spring rains in Indiana have reduced a lot of the nitrogen that would normally be available for a corn crop this year. Scott Lay, with Loveland Products, says that sidedressing nitrogen is a practice that makes economic and agronomic sense this year.

Lay: Any time you can more closely align your nitrogen application with when the corn plant needs it, you're able to get a better result. In addition, a supplemental application of nitrogen in season is more environmentally sound, because less nitrogen is prone to loss. Given some of the weather this spring, I think it's important that we take a good, hard look at how much nitrogen is available to the growing corn plant, and then ascertain how much nitrogen may be needed.

How to Enhance a Sidedress Nitrogen Application to Maximize Corn Yield

Posted by Agricen

After planting, corn growers must continue making critical decisions to ensure a good harvest. One key decision is how to manage their sidedress nitrogen application in a way that maximizes N use efficiency and increases yields.

This is extremely important given today’s market. According to USDA’s latest “World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates Report” (released May 10, 2017), the projected range for the corn season-average farm price is forecast to be between $3.00 and $3.80 per bushel.

During periods of low or declining commodity prices, it is critical to increase yields to lower the cost of production per bushel.
