HERBICIDE INSIGHTS: Corn System Study: One Pass vs. Two Passes

Author: Ben Wiegmann

Can farmers get away with making a single herbicide application on their corn crop, or should they utilize a two-pass herbicide application across the field? Ben Wiegmann, Beck’s Hybrids Field Sales Agronomist, discusses one-pass herbicide programs versus two-pass herbicide programs on corn. Watch this video to learn how to make a one-pass system work and what specific chemistries help make weed control effective on the corn crop. Nine different herbicide treatments were tested in this study: two treatments in a one-pass system, and seven treatments in a two-pass system.

Agronomy Talk: IMPACT OF SATURATED SOILS ON NITROGEN MANAGEMENT

Author: Craig Kilby

After planting, the effects of saturated or flooded fields can have a severe and potentially long-lasting impact on corn. The degree of the effect depends on the length of saturated conditions and the growth stage of the crop. Following corn emergence, saturated soils inhibit root growth and nutrient uptake due to a lack of oxygen in the soil. In higher organic matter soils, nitrate-nitrogen (N) rapidly converts to N gases and is lost to the atmosphere. As a result, under persistent saturation, corn roots stop functioning and plants turn yellow as photosynthesis slows.

Agronomy Talk: THE IMPACT OF SATURATED SOILS ON CORN AND SOYBEANS

Author: Luke Schulte

Heavy or persistent rains can lead to saturated soils that can injure or kill a seed, seedling, or growing plant. Saturated
soils have an impaired ability to exchange air between the atmosphere and soil. This deprives the seed or plant tissues
of oxygen required for respiration.

Agronomy Talk: MAXIMIZING SOIL WATER & NUTRIENTS WITH MYCORRHIZAE

Author: Luke Schulte

Often, we focus our understanding of soil biology on invasive, harmful pathogens. However, within soils are
numerous beneficial microorganisms vital to crop development. Mycorrhizae fungi make up such a segment of soil
biology, critical to the overall supply of water and nutrients to many crops.
