Titan XC Brings Out the Best in Alfalfa Field

Posted by Agricen

After viewing this alfalfa field image, the grower, who is a dairyman, went to visit his local Nutrien Ag Solutions branch in Dassell, Minnesota with an important question: "What's wrong with the top half of the field?"

Looking back in his records, branch manager Mike Amundson saw that the only difference between the different parts of the field was that fertilizer on the top half of the field had not been treated with a biocatalyst. The fertilizer on the bottom half, where the alfalfa crop was really thriving, had been treated with Titan XC.

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.

Don’t Short Next Year’s Crop

Posted by Agricen

By John Wolf, Director of Commercial Development, Agricen

Across most of the corn production area, 2014 has the potential be a banner year for yield. Given that higher average yields increase supply, economics dictate that prices will be somewhat lower without an accompanying increase in demand. This poses a dilemma for growers as they plan for next year’s crop.

Guest Blog: What to Expect When Banding Nutrients with Corn Seed

Posted by Elese Orrell

By Daniel Kaiser, PhD, Assistant Professor & Extension Specialist, University of Minnesota Twin Cities

In areas where spring is cool and wet, banding fertilizer with the planter can benefit corn crops. Although application of dry fertilizer with the corn planter has played an important role historically, it has become less common with increasing acreages and planter sizes. Instead, liquid fertilizers have steadily replaced dry for supplying nutrients to the corn plant early in the growing season.

Improve Starter Program Efficiency with Biocatalyst Technology

Posted by Elese Orrell

By Steve Sexton, Director of Technical Sales & Brian Cornelious, PhD, Director of Applied Sciences, Agricen

Growers use starter fertilizers to try to get plant nutrients in the right place at the right time for early plant growth. By applying small quantities of nutrients close to the seed in starter programs, growers can usually get their crops off to a good start—an advantage they can often maintain during the growing season. However, as with any fertilizer program, making sure that applied nutrients in a starter program are in a plant-available form right when the crop needs them most can be a challenge. How can growers improve the efficiency of their starter programs and realize the payoff of higher yields in the process?

Getting the Most Out of Your Sidedress Program

Posted by Agricen

One major misconception about growing a crop is that once the seed is planted and the crop is up, not much more work is required until harvest. In reality, as soon as growers catch their breath after a rigorous planting season, they must continue making critical management decisions to ensure a good harvest. One important decision is how to manage the sidedress application of nitrogen (N) fertilizer. In this blog, we will explore the benefits of sidedress fertilizer application and how to optimize it for maximum corn yield.
