Nitrogen management is always a moving target. Rate, timing, source, and placement dictate yield when it comes to nitrogen management. Mother Nature has just as much influence on nitrogen management, if not more, compared to the previously mentioned factors.
What do you do with a poor stand? How good of a stand is good enough? Beck’s Practical Farm Research (PFR®) implemented new studies in 2020 to help farmers manage a reduced stand of soybeans and have confidence in making decisions- including when to replant.
What is the ideal V3 sidedress rate of nitrogen, applied in the form of UAN on corn? New for 2020, Practical Farm Research (PFR™) implemented a nitrogen rate study to determine the impact of 150, 200, and 250 pounds of nitrogen sidedressed at V3.
Is using the fully automated FurrowForce setting better than using a manual downforce setting on a planter?
Harvest is wrapping up in most of our marketing area, which means it's time to start planning for next season. As we evaluate our 2020 crop, we should be thinking about nutrient management options to replace or build soil fertility. One factor that farmers often overlook when calculating fertility needs is the value in crop residue.
When is it warranted to replant corn after a frost event?

Should a grower band or broadcast fertilizer applications? In this new Practical Farm Research (PFR) study, phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) fertilizers are being put to the test in various rates and tillage practices, in both broadcast and banded applications. Phosphorus is being applied in the form of monoammonium phosphate and potassium is applied in the form of potash. The three tillage practices this study is performed on include: no-till, strip-till, and conventional-till field conditions.
Soil microbial health has been a hot agronomic topic of discussion lately. What can we learn and implement from sampling the microbial communities of our soils? Deatra Gremaux, the Practical Farm Research Data and Logistics Manager, from Beck’s Hybrids is working with Casey McGuire, Regional Pattern Ag Manager, to uncover the answers to that very question.
