Extract PBA Helps Overcome Phosphorus Deficiency in Fallow Soil

Posted by Agricen

Wet conditions in the spring of 2019 created major planting challenges for many growers in the Corn Belt. Due to flooding and excess moisture in the fields, an estimated 19.4 million acres were left unplanted. Unfortunately, this creates favorable conditions for fallow syndrome, a phosphorus deficiency in the soil that can negatively impact next season’s crop.

Growers with fields left fallow in 2019 should consider making a fall or spring application of Extract Powered by Accomplish® (Extract PBA) to overcome the potential impact of fallow syndrome. Extract PBA helps growers maximize yields by releasing bound nutrients in the soil, making them available to the next crop.

Biocatalyst Technologies Are Helping to Transform Grower Productivity

Posted by Agricen

Last year, no fewer than five national winners and seven state winners of the NCGA's National Corn Yield Contest used Agricen's biocatalyst technology on their winning acres. We are fortunate to be represented in the best practices of many leading growers, and humbled by the opportunity to help transform grower productivity.

Before the start of this year's harvest, we had the opportunity to meet up with some of the 2018 NCGA winners to celebrate their success last season. Here are some of the folks we are honored to say have used Accomplish LM, Titan XC or Extract PBA as part of their winning strategy.

Implementing Sustainable Residue Management Practices at Broken O Ranch

Posted by Agricen

Broken O Ranch in Augusta, Montana, is a farming operation that grows wheat, barley, alfalfa, flax, canola and chickpeas on about 12,000 irrigated acres.

A big concern at the ranch is how to handle crop residue without burning it. Most states around Montana have banned all burning of residue. Dale Clark, the farm manager at Broken O Ranch, feels that it's only a matter of time before the practice is banned in Montana as well. But he also has bigger issues with the practice.

Burning residue not only takes time and labor, but it also adversely affects the availability of soil moisture because the ground becomes harder after burning," says Dale. "More than that, it negatively impacts nutrient availability. Nutrients are lost when ash is blown by the wind and redeposited or carried off.”

"At Broken O, we’ve been looking for a sustainable solution that we can implement right now,” he says.

Top Corn Producers Used Accomplish LM, Extract PBA & Titan XC

Posted by Agricen

When the National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) announced the national winners of the 2017 NCGA corn yield contest earlier this year, four of these top corn producers had something big in common. It was their use of one or more biocatalyst technologies made by Agricen and available from Loveland Products. Over the next few weeks we will profile each of those top producers and talk about how they utilized Accomplish LM, Extract PBA or Titan XC as part of their winning program. This week, we start by featuring Don Stall of Charlotte, Michigan. With a yield of 407.22 bushels/acre, Don placed first in the nation for irrigated corn.

Biocatalyst Technologies a Good Match with Poultry Manures and Litters

Posted by Agricen

Poultry manures and litters are an excellent source of crop nutrients—ones that can be more easily accessed by the crop when Extract PBA or Accomplish LM is used. In the corn trials below, these biocatalyst technologies maximized nutrient release from poultry manures so that more nutrients were available faster to the crop, leading to higher corn yields.  

In a trial conducted in Kentucky, Extract PBA was spread with UAN over turkey manure in the fall. Soil samples from the treated and untreated plots were taken in January, and showed an increase in the availability of many nutrients with the Extract PBA application. At harvest there was a 16.9 bu/acre corn yield increase where Extract PBA had been applied.

Breaking Down Corn Stalk Residue with Extract PBA

Posted by Agricen

In a demonstration conducted by Crop Production Services (CPS) in Galesburg, Illinois, Extract PBA was sprayed in fall 2017 on a corn field post-harvest. In spring of 2018, stalks were pulled and split to examine the differences in residue breakdown between treated and untreated parts of the field. As seen in the photo, the Extract-treated stalks were in a more advanced stage of decomposition than untreated stalks by early spring.

Extract PBA was sprayed on Nov. 29, 2017. This photo shows corn stalks from treated and untreated parts of the field that were pulled and split on March 23, 2018.

Understanding the Biochemistry in Accomplish Technologies

Posted by Agricen

Accomplish LM, Extract PBA, and Titan XC contain concentrated biochemistry that helps growers increase nutrient availability to their crop, enhance root growth and functioning, and improve overall plant performance. But, what exactly is biochemistry?

Biochemistry is the chemistry of life. It is created by, in, and from living organisms, such as soil microbes. A number of different biochemistries are created by soil microbes—each serving an important role in soil microbial functioning, and even in plant functioning.

Spring-Applied Extract PBA Gives Corn a Big Boost

Posted by Agricen

In this corn field trial from Wood River, Nebraska, a spring application of Extract PBA led to a corn yield result that was 32 bu/a better than check at harvest. Assuming $3.10 bushel corn, the yield result from this trial translates into an ROI of $87.20 per acre.

Congratulations to Our Webinar Winners

Posted by Agricen

Congratulations to the growers who participated in two of this year's most recent webinars and won!

Grower Carey Burklund of Mount Olive, Illinois, is the recipient of a $500 American Express gift card for attending our webinar, "A New Perspective on Soybean Yield Improvement." The webinar focused on soybean nutritional needs and how using Extract PBA for nutrient release can contribute to greater yield opportunities.

Carey is pictured here receiving his gift card from Therese Wyman, Manager of the Crop Production Services (CPS) farm center in Paxton, Illinois.

Soybeans Excel with Nutrient Release from Fall-Applied Extract PBA

Posted by Agricen

Extract PBA has been making a big difference in soybean trials being conducted by CPS Palmyra at a farm just outside of Monroe City, Missouri. Extract PBA was applied in the fall of 2016 at 1 gallon per acre on corn stalks, along with 2 gallons per acre of UAN. Soybeans were planted on May 18, 2017, and all pictures were taken approximately two months later, on July 26, 2017.

The photos show that soybeans from the Extract-treated part of the field have longer primary roots, larger leaves and stems, and more nodes and nodules compared to soybeans from the untreated parts of the field.
