As crop growers, it must be nearly a full time job at times of the year trying to analyze all the plots, side-by-side trials and government information to make an informed and economically beneficial management decision regarding management practices for your operation.
We’ve all walked soybean fields and observed how sometimes the top cluster of pods is finished nicely and sometimes they aren’t. Many use the term “Florida pods” to describe these, since the yield from them represent the extra profit that can take the family on a trip to Florida.
This is a must do!!
REMEMBER – These are living organisms that need to be protected and handled with care!!
It’s the time of year when all of us in crop production start doing the analyzing about what we did right or wrong in this year’s cropping program. ALPINE’s the same in that we look over yield data from the many plots we put out each season, trying to find new and different products to boost grower’s profits.
Wheat planting season will soon be upon us and it is important to plan ahead before putting the first seed in the ground. The previous crop has a part to play in planting this year’s wheat.Read more
When I was thinking about writing this blog it was going to be a lot longer and be a more technical subject. But, on my way home today I came across, yet another, self-propelled sprayer meets car accident. Yes, in August! Luckily no one was hurt.
We’ve come through what could be called a very challenging spring in most parts of Ontario. Excessive moisture delayed planting in many parts of the province, and continued into late June which kept sprayers out of the fields many days, delaying crop protection applications.
April is crazy in the life of a DSM. So far in the last weeks I’ve built application kits, picked up and delivered liquid caddies, picked up and delivered storage tanks, installed six application kits, all the while getting my farm ready for spring seeding. ALPINE is built on service to our customers, we stand out by going the extra mile and earning our customers’ business. Give us the opportunity and we will earn yours too. #doyouALPINE
On the educational circuit this winter, discussion around the 4R’s is in the forefront of cropping systems topics. By now hopefully everyone understands what the 4R’s represent in managing a crop fertility program: 1) the right source 2) the right placement 3) the right rate and 4) the right timing.
With the show season starting to wrap up, it’s time to start getting plans finalized for spring. Contact your local ALPINE DSM and get your drill kit, inoculant injector, ALPINE G22, storage tanks and micros planned out for seeding. It’s as simple as a phone call and we will be at your side to help you as much as we can. Have a great spring and be safe.
