The end is near for the 2016 crop! As we prepare equipment for harvest, take time to review your plans for fall. Will you be sowing wheat, collecting soil samples, establishing cover crops, or even improving your fields’ drainage? There’s still time to review these plans to make sure these fall projects go smoothly.
Another great idea this time of year is to spend some time in your fields taking one last look at your hybrids and varieties. This will help you assess the overall disease pressure, take final notes on weed control, and make notes on overall plant health and nitrogen management. This can come in handy as you begin to finalize your seed needs and input decisions for 2017.
As combines begin to roll, don’t forget to spend time calibrating your yield monitors and grain cart scales. Yield monitors create valuable data for assessing each field and planning for the future. Work safely and enjoy the season! -
