Getting Ready for Spring 2011
Well here we go again diving into a new crop year! I am sure there are many factors racing through all of your minds about the coming season. The weather and moisture conditions cannot be ignored, but let as look at some of the things you can control!
Our fields have a maximum amount of reserve moisture, meaning that the ones you seed are going to have maximum yield potential. So how does this impact our 2011 crop plan? When applying the Ultimate Yield-TM process to the question
the answers become obvious.
Calculate your fertility program to match your target yield. A great deal of moisture is expected this spring, so the target yield will be high and planning a well balanced ration to feed your crop is necessary. In many cases a split fertilizer program that involves top dressing should be considered to spread out the feeding window. Higher target yields mean you need to look at adding micro nutrients to your program like copper, zinc, and boron. These nutrients can be delivered through a variety of sources, seed dressing, foliar, or dry fertilizer.
