While this Harvest Season begins it is important to remember to slow down and stay safe. With that in mind it is also time to evaluate your fields performance, did you have the stand you should have, was there leaching problems, did disease have a detrimental effect on the plant? These are some of the things we are seeing and it seems to be a trend leading towards increase susceptibility to stalk rots and potentially down corn. Here at The Seed Source we can provide an educated second opinion for harvest staging and field evaluations.
It is that time of year again, and while you can get a personal tour of our show plots located in Northeast Nebraska our official plot tour date is fast approaching. September 15th from 4:30-7:30 one mile north of bomgaars in Wayne Nebraska will be our first showing, September 17th from 4:30 to 7:30 one/half mile mile north of Bloomfield farmers pride will be our second showing (Supper will be provided at both locations). At all locations with the help of some incorporated agronomic plots we will discuss fertility, hybirid/varietys, agronomics and this years growing season.
This season has proven to be challenging with the variety of stress causing occurrences. With the Crops starting to show the effects of leaching or soil type changes it seems necessary to assess what is left out there after the combines roll and to proceed with next years crop plan. Here at The Seed Source we provide an independent source for your soil sampling needs with the creation of recommendations that are "color blind" to types of machinery we can take your prescriptions to any retailer you choose.
