Last year at this time you could not talk to any farmer in North America without talking about fertilizer. Fertilizer is still a hot topic but it is more centred now around variable rate technology or products like ESN. ESN allows farmers to apply more fertilizer at seeding time due to the timed slow release of the product. The product does come with a premium but I have heard from many farmers that if used properly it can provide high rewards. I don’t have any personal experience with ESN but it is a highly innovative product that makes sense for many applications. The other neat tidbit is that the global production plant for ESN is in Carseland, AB.
If you have used ESN in the past let me know what you thought or if you will use it again. If you are interested in ESN and have questions let us know and we will try and get your questions answered for you.
I talked to Craig Davidson from Taurus about why a farmer might consider ESN for their farm this season.
