  • Get the red clover on the wheat! For goodness sakes, don’t wait any longer!
  • No changing Wheat Pete’s mind on GMOs.
  • We’ve covered tillering, but how about quantities? How much nitrogen do I put on early versus late?
  • Taking it slow with increasing nitrogen applications in the nitrogen/protein debate.
  • What’s with the dip in production with newly broke land? Is there a way to maximize yields in those first years?
  • Is there a nitrogen credit on soybeans?
  • Is all this data from the 1970s still applicable?
  • Are you wasting fertilizer by broadcasting it?
