How do corn hybrids respond to foliar feeding? And what’s the potential yield impact and return on that investment? Those are questions PRIDE Seeds agronomist Stephanie Myslik tackles on this episode of RealAgriculture Corn School. In 2023, Myslik ran a trial to evaluate how tissue testing and foliar feeding could impact the PRIDE hybrid A6929G4…. Read More

A plant growth regulator (PGR) can play a key role in helping growers manage the impact of lodging in spring and winter wheat crops. But growers have plenty of management decisions to consider to effectively use a PGR to reduce lodging, increase harvestability and protect and increase grain yield. Reducing lodging starts with selecting a… Read More

Farms are workplaces where interaction with several classes of chemicals is inevitable. Chemicals can enter the body in different ways: through inhalation, absorption, ingestion and injection, so it’s important for farmers and farm workers to understand the risk associated with each type of chemical and how to avoid exposure whenever possible. For this episode of… Read More

What crops can benefit from inoculants and what kind of yield impact can they have? XiteBio Technologies U.S. sales managers Doug Tigges says the first questions he typically gets from growers include whether an inoculant or biological product is easy to use; how it fits into management of the crops grown on the farm; and… Read More

Legumes, such as alfalfa, trefoil, and sainfoin, are a great feed source, are excellent for soil health, and play a role in sequestering carbon in the soil. According to emerging research by Dr. Bart Lardner, legumes in the bovine diet also lowers methane emissions, one of the components being measured in an on-going research project… Read More

Research from Purdue University agronomy professor Shaun Casteel indicates that early sulphur applications broadcast pre-plant or right at planting can deliver a soybean yield bump in specific conditions. On the season debut of The Sharp Edge, Maizex agronomist Henry Prinzen takes that knowledge to the field to compare notes with Simcoe, Ontario, grower Kyle Sowden… Read More

There’s no better place to conduct practical agronomic research than in the real world, under the same conditions, using the same equipment and management practices. That’s the premise underlying the Manitoba Pulse and Soybean Growers’ On-Farm Network, a farmer-driven research program that was officially launched 10 years ago, in 2014. “We really saw a need… Read More

When it comes to phosphorus, having early availability close to the seed is of utmost importance to support early seedling development. Too much phosphorus too close can also cause seedling toxicity and death. What’s the right amount for starter fertilizer? There’s no one right answer, but there are several considerations for phosphorus management at seeding,… Read More
